I’m updating this website….at the time of posting it is the old one, and NOT my work.

I’m giving this “working in a cafe” thing a go. Thus far, massive success. Might have something to do with the coffee I keep drinking to demonstrate that I belong here.
And now, to action!
I start each day by spending an hour pimping out my online presence (among replying to emails, and getting ready for the day). It’s totally worth it, but also not nearly enough!
Honestly, there’s so much I could be doing. I love it.
I’m currently working on a site called, “Massage me anywhere”.
I hope it means geographically.
When I first started working for myself I needed a confidence boost, and sitting in my office asking people if they needed help with anything wasn’t giving me it.
I had a tonne of offers for agency work, but I’m in this game to create my own business, not just support someone else’s. I’m happy to be a gun for hire, but I want to at least be protecting my own town.
A friend recommended PeoplePerHour, and at first I was somewhat sceptical because of other similar freelance sites I’d used (that all seemed very driven to support the buyer, making the seller feel like a turd begging for work) but got my first paying job on it within several hours. Then another. Then a third.
That was the confidence I needed. Next thing I knew I was taking on client’s from elsewhere, and could demonstrate my skills.
I came back though. I wanted to start 2013 with some fresh work, so you’ll find me selling my wares there again. It’s a creative space for people to meet and find common ground to work towards. ANd of course, there’s some really talented developers on there too.
If I do say so myself.
Why not hire me?
