In a nutshell and one breath: a web developing business owner driven by a fierce passion for the internet and the access it provides to limitless possibilities and opportunities with an unhealthy obsession for learning and creating things with code while tapping into a deep-rooted entrepreneurial drive to fuel the building and development of new online business ventures and tools for amazing people with shared enthusiasms and similar bucket lists. INHALE.
All this while side hustling as a bonsai master and coffee enthusiast that enjoys riding mountain bikes, skating boards, messing around with music decks and upsetting the apple cart on FB.
After wasting way too much time obessing over popular CMSes, Joomla and WordPress and honing Search Engine Optimisation skills to get that sweet Google luurve, a love for concrete surfing lead to the conceptualisation and development of Longboarding SA which proceeded to accidentally turn into a successful business.
After +-5 years of dividing time between running an online store and obessing over the latest web technologies, a decision was made to sell the shop and focus on the fun web stuff.
With a newly discovered passion for digital marketing and a realisation that the internet offers endless possibilities to generate income, new ideas were formed and pursued.
Now days (and nights and weekends) are spent slowly but surely developing an online empire, meeting cool people and building fruitful partnerships and relationships.
The lines between work and hobby have been blurred into an exciting adventure.
Dedicated to steering clear of the same old boring CMS solutions used by the norm, because fighting clunky old systems to get the 20% functionality needed to produce a basic result is not creative, it's destructive.
With all these amazing toys continuously opening up doors to new opportunities, who wants to destructure old Content Management Systems?
Building web solutions for clients is fun and always bring with it new and exciting challenges.
That is just one part of the fun though. As Black Alsatian, my web development and marketing company, in collaboration with my partner, we're also constantly focused on developing our own websites.
Using our SEO, Pay Per Click and various other digital skills we focus heavily on lead generation in various niche markets.
We're constantly on the lookout for new ideas and opportunities. If you have a great idea and are looking for a solution or even a partner to help you breathe life into it, Feel free to contact me!
I love a good, strong coffee and the excuse to get out behind the computer screen to meet new people and discuss ideas!X
