Whenever time permits I enjoy working on a variety of freelance projects. Some of the most recent projects I have worked on are listed below:
Mark Richards is an iconic Australian surfer from Merewether, Australia. Mark is a four time world surfing champion (1979–1982) and is highly respected by his peers. Mark is still based in Newcastle, where he was born, and he runs a surfboard manufacturing business. His time is mostly spent mowing surfboard foam, and trying to surf whenever time permits. Recently Mark asked me to design, develop and launch a new website which he has embraced with open arms and is actively updating with minimal assistance from my end.

Phil Frawley is a human who was truly born to fly. As a young boy he spent countless hours building model airplanes and dreaming of the day when he would get to control an aircraft. Phil’s hard work, determination and perseverance finally paid off when, after five years as an aircraft technician, he was accepted into the Royal Australian Air Force 92 Pilots Course in July 1974. 43 years later, Phil is still flying for the RAAF. He is currently a Squadron Leader at 76 Squadron flying the Hawk 127 and so he is still an active jet fighter pilot. In fact he even holds a Guinness World Record to prove it.
