About me

  • Simon started teaching the fledgling, burgeoning field of desktop publishing in the mid 1990s before moving to London, UK for some hands-on experience in publishing for print in the financial industry. 
  • Being on the front lines of giant printing presses gave Simon a talent for extreme discipline and accuracy which he has carried over into pixel-perfect websites.
  • Simon returned to Cape Town, South Africa, and built his first website in the year 2000 and never looked back. He has been working freelance or as a contractor ever since.
