Hi. I'm Gil.

I’ve been making amazing things with web and digital technologies for nearly twenty years.

I’ve worked for agencies, universities and startups, designing and building everything from gargantuan eCommerce applications and corporate training platforms through to Disney/Marvel online treasure hunts and boutique websites for Australian artists.

As a technical consultant, my job is to help you get the very best from the extraordinary, sometimes overwhelming, landscape of new technologies that are transforming modern life.

I'm based in Melbourne, Australia, and while face-to-face is always the best, I can use messaging tools and cloud services to work effectively with clients around the country and internationally.

Let's make something awesome!

How can I help?

I help my clients to harness web technology as a tool for delivering compelling experiences and valuable services with measurable impact. Here are some of the ways I can contribute to the success of your next digital project.

Creative Technology

Expand your creative canvas with cutting edge technical platforms and tools. Test ideas with rapid prototyping and demonstrate complex solutions with ease.

Technical Review

Technical feasibility and budget assessments allow you to pitch even your wildest ideas with confidence.

UX Design

Comprehensive requirements gathering and user-centric solution design guarantees your project is a hit with its audience.

Project Specification

Detailed functional & technical documentation, cementing a common understanding of scope and budget from day 1.

About me

I am a passionate advocate for technology as an enabler of rich, engaging communications. I work closely with clients, creative teams, developers and strategists to craft compelling experiences and communications.

Professional Experience

I’ve been working with online and digital technologies for over 15 years. During that time, I’ve worked with startups, education providers, and marketing agencies as a programmer, team lead, technical director and creative technologist.

Not all at once, obviously.

These days I work with agencies, web development houses and their clients. I help translate requirements into precise technical specifications, develop proof-of-concept prototypes, consult on technical feasibility for creative concepts and advise on technical development budgets.

Testimonials

Here's what people say about working with me.

Lee Steer

Founder

artmarketspace

Being from Brisbane, I had met with several local businesses but I never got a great feeling for them. Gil was referred to me by a friend in Melbourne, and from our very first meeting, Gil knew exactly how to deliver what we wanted and he really got our project.

The process could not have been easier and Gil was also able to add value into the Prototype. The communication between us was extremely professional and he always made himself available. For anyone looking for someone extremely dynamic I would always suggest Gil, even if it means flying to Melbourne!

Matthew Jefferies

Head of Digital

Miele Australia & New Zealand

Gil is professional and efficient in stakeholder management, and applies his years of Digital expertise in UX, web process, solution design and documentation. The team enjoyed consulting with Gil, and we continue to benefit from his professional services.

Sonya Stephen

Co-founder

Choovie

Gil offered the perfect creative solutions for our technical needs, with incredibly clear and detailed documentation.

We couldn’t recommend him highly enough. He is responsive, reliable and a fabulous person to work with.

Ed Carveth

as Executive Creative Director

Sputnik Agency

There are those who make it harder to work and those who inspire you to make it better. Gil is certainly from the latter camp. He can always be relied upon to approach a problem from a different perspective with fresh (and often wonderfully peculiar) thinking. He has all 8 fingers on the pulse and is always happy to roll up his sleeves and get greasy.

Daniel Robathan

as Head of Digital Experience

BWM Agency

Gil is exactly what a creative technologist should be. A very experienced developer and solutions architect who has a genuine interest in how to do things differently. He understands people and what motivates them and, as such, is great in front of clients but equally respected by the teams he’s part of.

Brooke Allan

as Digital Partnership Manager

Rackspace

I loved working with Gil in his roles at both BWM and Clemenger. Gil was always on top of projects, timelines and internal/external stakeholders. He has great attention to detail, technical aptitude and ability to collaborate across different companies to ensure a project’s success.

Say G'day

...or hello, or xin chào, or buon giorno, or owdy-hay, or...well, you get the picture. Don't be a stranger.
