I am a freelance web developer and online business consultant
with a passion for helping others and businesses grow.

I love creating websites that work,
designing appealing visuals and achieving business goals.

The main aim of SWD is to help you advance your career
and grow your freelancing business.

Whether you are looking to grow in your career,
get a second income, or to move over to freelancing full-time,
I cover topics that will be helpful for you.

I’m not a fan of talking about myself,
but it’s important that you know more about me
now that you are here.

Here are some brief highlights:

- I'm a ‘self-taught’ developer and freelancer.
- I am an introvert.
- I've always been interested in business and how people think.
- I’ve worked in various sectors ranging from Retail, Accounting, IT,
eCommerce and others.
- I'm married to an incredible woman :)
- I love helping others create new lives for themselves.
- I don't have any 'formal education' and I dropped out of high school.
- I currently work on my own online ventures as well as client work.
SWD is my blog where I share my views on what works.

All these things have influenced me and shaped me into who I am today.

If I let my environment, surroundings and experiences dictate who I would turn out to be in my future, I would never have been able to become independent, have an amazing job, marry my wife in my early 20's or utilize the business skills that I have acquired over the years to create success for others.

If you do what you've always done, you will get what you've always gotten.


So, what have I ‘formally’ studied?

Quirk Certified Digital Marketer
Business Management
Various courses through Thinkful
(Thinkful also offers a big exclusive discount for SWD visitors only)
Various courses through Udemy
Software Engineering – FirehoseProject
Various coding, design and business books

What’s more important is not the ‘formal’ studies, but rather the ‘informal’ studies I’ve
learned by doing, and by ‘stealing’ wisdom from others.

As you go through SWD, you’ll notice that I don’t talk ‘fluff’. I try and provide actionable tips and valuable information that you can start applying today – mixed with some of my incredible jokes of course.
