The White Whale

New Zealand Based Busy Beaver


My experience in internet technologies dates back to 1998 and I have created many many many websites and Internet applications in the private and public sectors both as a freelancer and as part of the Orangeleaf Systems team. I have experience with php frameworks: Zend Framework, Laravel, Symfony and recently also SilverStripe.

My designs are no nonsense and standards compliant, insuring a high degree of future proofing – my oldest running site was launched in 1999.

I tend to use WordPress, but can also provide Drupal or Joomla. I also have a home grown Content Management System that I use for bespoke systems.
