About Me

Martin Slack7 years ago my wife and I decided on a tree-change and moved from Melbourne, Australia to the Victorian High Country.

After a few years growing hydroponic tomatoes (an interesting experience) I enrolled in a series of courses to learn how to earn a living online. In the process, I learned WordPress in detail.

I currently develop WordPress sites for local and online clients using customised themes, premium themes and theme frameworks with customised skins.

My experience includes editing and updating existing websites and dynamic web applications.

I studied business at the University of Cape Town, graduating with a Bachelor of Business Science (Honours) in Marketing.

More recently, I completed a 6 month front-end developer course to add formal training to my 4 year developer experience. Through both the training and experience I acquired the range of skills necessary for front-end development, including the following.

Technical Skills

  • HTML5
  • CSS3
  • JavaScript and JQuery
  • Git and Github
  • WordPress
  • PHP

Design Skills

  • Adobe Photoshop
  • GIMP
  • Inkscape
  • ScreenFlow

My years in business provided much experience that is relevant to developing websites as commercial investments. In particular, marketing skills have proved very useful.
