This is the place to say hi, so I guess I'll go first. I'm Richard, owner of this site. I got started with web development back in 1995 when I was working for a shop in Sydney that sold Sony stuff. The store owners wanted a website and as I had been messing about on the web for a couple of years, I was the ideal candidate. Now I think about it, the only candidate. There wasn't much help available back then which is why I subsequently developed a passion for helping others build websites. I went on to create a web design business and experienced the highs and lows that came with that for 16 1/2 years.
These days I spend most of my time producing training courses, but I also have a couple of ecommerce stores and I continue to operate a site for the Joomla content management system.
I live in a northern suburb of Sydney with 1 wife, 4 kids and 17 fish. Life is busy.
