From the end of January to mid-April 2007, I was employed by Communicator Interactive as an HTML developer. This role included developing websites for both desktop and mobile environments.
In this role, I developed websites for organisations including 3m, Rexona and Brown Brothers.
Note: In the years since this work was performed, each of the sites have since been redeveloped by other developers.
These contracts included the following organisations:
I was employed at HotHouse Interactive, initially beginning as a contractor for 1 month, and then continuing for a further 3 months. During this time, I worked on a number of projects, primarily using standards compliant HTML, CSS and DOM scripting techniques.
In this role, I created and/or worked on a number of websites including Crowne Plaza (related: blog entry), Holiday Inn, Toyota, Homehound, HCF Eyecare and Omnus. My main job was to convert the designs for these pages (Photoshop images) into markup and CSS.

Proceedings of the First Australian Undergraduate Students' Computing Conference 2003
During my final university year I tutored a first-year student in several subjects including ‘Introduction to IT’, also covering website design and the internals of operating systems.
I learned how to help the student to improve his understanding of the subject material and to manage schedules.
In September 2003, my major project group (Akamai Database) attended AUSCC 03 (http://www.auscc.org/), the inaugural Australian undergraduate students' computing conference; to present a paper we have written on storing complex data structures in object oriented databases. This event was held at Melbourne University’s Information and Communication Technology centre and provided me with valuable experience in public speaking and improved my presentation skills.
Topics studied include:
As part of my IT degree, I completed a major project in a team of four people developing an object-oriented database application for the storage of images and associated data for Akamai, an artificially intelligent vision system.
