Hi Everybody. I’m Ross, the head Web Developer here at Argon Design. Despite my ‘official employment’ only starting in August 2015, I’ve actually worked for Argon in various capacities since 2011; while building my own freelancing business. So I’m pretty familiar with the place!
Originally hailing from the seaside town of Burnham-on-Sea in Somerset, England, I moved to Australia in 2003… and yes, I still have a bit of an English accent. It wasn’t long before my self-taught passion for creating websites, in particular WordPress, surfaced and I became obsessed with making custom themes and plugins. I’m drawn to website development because of my love for assembling useful and practical tools for others as well as the enjoyment I get from unravelling intricate problems. There are always plenty of new challenges and things to learn as a Web Developer, with the ever evolving world of technology constantly keeping me on my toes.
Despite being comfortable in my freelance business, which I’d run for 7 years, I decided it was time to move on. I really wanted to be part of a team, work on bigger projects but primarily focus on continuing to build my website development knowledge. Plus I get more time to spend fishing, playing guitar, BMXing and aquascaping!
