“Michael supported us with the customisation and build for Undiscussables.com. What stood out from the word go was his approach to contracting coupled with his delivery.
From the word go, Michael was brilliant at asking us the right questions to both clarify our needs, get to the heart of the project, and in terms of identifying what was and was not important.
Michael managed our expectations superbly, and is probably the best person I have worked with, period, for clarity. I know every step of the way what he is committing to do and where his responsibility begins and ends; and he delivers.”
“Its been an exciting time since the website Michael built for me went live. The site has been incredibly well received by both my peers and clients.
I was initially impressed with Michael's portfolio and when we met, he had a can do attitude that I found other developers lacked. I was feeling like the ideas in my head might be a little impractical but Michael nurtured them and gave them the structure they needed.
I am very passionate about my work and Michael is a kindred spirit. The website is perfect thanks to Michael's hard work and he has also been a patient educator in all things WordPress.
I really appreciate all Michael's help and ideas, and for giving me the confidence to manage the website myself. I absolutely love it!”
“Michael is a diligent, thoughtful and wise partner, who anticipates the unexpected and preempts issues before they arise.
He's responsive to our cries for help, and provides solutions to problems we didn't know we'd have.”
“The process of getting our new website designed, developed and built was more straightforward than we thought possible.
We're chuffed with the whole outcome of our new website and the ability to manage our content using WordPress.”
“Michael was really great to work with and I will certainly think of him first whenever any further Wordpress work comes up.
I am so glad that we got the chance to work together as it is really hard to find reliable, professional and expert people and he is all of these.
I know that the people at 580 Limited think he has been great to work with as well.”
“It's always refreshing to know for sure you're dealing with someone who cares about the project at hand.
Michael personifies the high standard of professionalism his company represent and is extremely polite and easy to work with.
Rarely have I worked with someone who is as responsive and well organized.”
“A dexterous and human approach to web development made this project a pleasure to work on.
We work with a number of online design consultants and creatives, I have found Michael to be both the most time efficient and understanding of our working needs.
The Wordpress content management system Michael tailored to our needs is the simplest I have ever used, and can handle a broader range of content than other systems we've commissioned.
Michael is very thorough in pursuit of the original brief and provides the attention to detail that makes the difference between good and bad online content.
I can't recommend these services anymore highly.”
“I have felt so empowered by Michael during the development of my website.
As an artist the significance of an online presence is obvious. I feel that it is from Michael's guidance during the process of building my website that I have been able to shift my mind towards the professionalism that I now feel my work deserves.”
“A website is an essential shop window for most businesses and needs to be given due consideration.
I enjoyed working with Michael as he understood the importance of the structure and design philosophy, and was passionate about achieving clean elegant solutions that fulfilled our aspirations.”
“I was delighted with the work that Michael provided. He created a very professional, clear and precise website for my husbands business. The website was well presented and delivered everything I asked for.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Michael's services to my friends and colleagues.”
“Michael built my website, educated me about Wordpress, advised me on netiquette and accessibility, managed the transfer of my domain registration and generally impressed the hell out of me with his professionalism, courtesy, efficiency and value.
The Copy House
“We worked together on several projects - and Michael's approach to business was always inspiring and energy-giving.
His relationship to the people he does business with never has any pretense and he's always naturally encouraging.
His whole approach seems to be a constant process of investigation; looking for people's actual needs and drawing out the best in them. Including me ;)”
“I came to Michael with an existing website that was not in my control. Whenever I had to make changes I had to go back to my developer.
I explained to Michael that I wanted to clean up my web page, change the style and make it easy enough for me to manage myself. Not only did he re-create the entire website but he also sat with me and walked me through the website and showed me how to manage it.
His experience and expertise helped me to make decisions in design, content and graphics.
I am very happy with Michael’s attention to my needs and I would recommend his work to anyone, especially those who have very little knowledge of computers, like me.”
“Michael's expertise has proved invaluable during the rebranding of our product, he has a keen eye for detail, is hard-working, diligent and would be an asset to any team.
He is a friendly, dedicated and professional individual with excellent people skills.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.”

“I have worked with Michael on two projects in my role as a website editor in the non-profit sector. The first was a social media project in which Michael helped to shape and encourage the organisation's experiments in this area.
We asked Michael back some months later to help with a completely different project. With his methodical yet creative approach, he rescued a project that was failing before his arrival, removing the anxiety and helping the staff to see the benefits of investing time in planning and of embracing his 'story-telling' approach.
I've been suitably impressed with Michael's work that I've shared ideas for personal projects and have found his advice to be invaluable.
“Michael is a handy man to know.
He's technically proficient but business-minded too. So I know that whatever challenge I bring to him, he'll accomplish it with professionalism and a high degree of business acumen.
So basically, with Michael you get much more than you pay for.
I'd recommend Michael to anyone who needs help with their website. He'll do a fantastic job”
“Michael has provided invaluable support to my online publishing business, often at short notice, and has always been a pleasure to work with.”
“Having worked with Michael on my own web project, I wholly endorse his approach.
He has a common sense approach to communicating which keeps to the point. This sound and systematic approach is so refreshing, and way beyond technology for the sake of technology.
He makes me laugh too, which really helps!”
“We were nothing but impressed with the work Michael did for us and the way he conducted himself in all he did.
He went out of his way to get the job done and more, always with a positive attitude. My lasting impression importantly is that Michael is a very good communicator.
I never felt left in the dark when the technical side was a bit beyond my normal comprehension: Michael always took time to explain exactly what was happening and why.
“I met Michael and was intrigued by his business story telling concept. Michael is interested in helping people and companies understand what it is they do. He then helps you work out what story you should be putting across to your clients and potential clients. His mission is to simplify and simplify right down to the core concept(s) alone.
He makes the process of finding this out fun. Together you find out what you do, and even what you might rather be doing and then boil it back down to the minimum story needed. I found this to be a very powerful process, and ended up with a simple 3 word story instead of a complicated epic to describe what I do.
I highly recommend you find out more about this from Michael and give the process a go.”
“Full of enthusiasm and very down to earth and pragmatic, Michael is always willing to talk around things to find the best solution.
He seeks to avoid magical thinking, but conjure the impactful.
He is constantly seeking out that sweet spot which is shared between the needs and desires of all diverse parties that are affected and involved in a project.
He's a great guy, fun to work with and I hope we will continue to do so often.”
