Pastures new and a rather large animal!

So finally it’s official. After over 3 years working at Mark Turner and Dame Ellen MacArthur’s OC Group as Group IT and Technology Manager, I have taken the decision to move away from ‘normal’ employment to start up my own Agency.

It was a difficult decision to make, helped by the board at OC, who I thank immensely for helping through the transition period and to whom I will continue to be working for as a consultant ongoing for their business technology and infrastructure support.

The business has had a lot of internal restructuring since when I originally started at the business and whilst I have supported the business through all of these transitions, I have become more of a ‘manager’ and less of a ‘doer’ – losing touch with technology and although I have led the business migration to ExpressionEngine for all our websites, I’ve not been able to dedicate as much time as I would have liked in the pursuit of custom addons and development.

So, I’ve decided to start up my agency again. Over the last 6 months I’ve been providing the occasional ExpressionEngine and Ruby on Rails support to designers and developers all around the world who need outsource assistance and as well as taking on some of my own clients, I hope to be able to extend my relationships with more designers and developers to take on some development projects on their behalf.

Ladies and Gentleman, I present to you:
