About us

Born from the idea of creating a small, high-performance team to help businesses cut through the noise and make things happen, we kicked things off around 10 years ago.

As well as over 40 years' combined experience, we also like to harness our different but complimentary personality types. With Sam bringing energy, enthusiasm and big picture thinking and Ben bringing realism, attention to detail and methodical thinking. We think it works well!

Hey, I'm Ben - a digital consultant / full-stack web developer with over 20 years of experience.

My ability to blend technical knowledge with business acumen allows me to develop intelligent and sustainable solutions that deliver business value, increase productivity and reduce costs.

I've worked across a number of industries including telecoms, education and energy management and am always keen to bring my experience to new industries and business types.

My preferred technology stack is PHP/Laravel, Livewire, Alpine.js and Tailwind CSS, but I'm also well positioned to help businesses migrate from older technologies that may be holding them back.

I work well in teams, whether coaching, collaborating or leading and understand the importance of stakeholder engagement, communication and planning.
