HI THERE! I’M KIMBERLY
I currently house/pet sit in and around Sydney and sometimes up and down the east coast of Australia. While doing this I am seeking work and also helping individuals, small businesses and new startups build their web presence and computer support. I have been working within the IT (Information Technology) Industry since 1982 and have created over 100 amazingly unique websites, provided help and support for many thousands of computer users solving their problems with their Windows and Apple computers. I personally have a passion for technology and graphics design and look forward to the new emerging devices that can make our lives better and more fun.
In the 80’s I founded and operated the Australian MSX computer users club, The Grace Bros computer club and appeared in the local media promoting computers and technology. I was hired by John Sands Sega to demonstrate their Personal Computers at Shopping Centres and Computer Shows.
In the 90’s I became the web author of the first online pizza ordering website Pizza.net.au, created the popular Great Australian Graphics Clip Art library and worked on the user interface for Japanese Tutor for Ashton Scholastic. I created font and clip art libraries for the Windows competitor Berkely Systems GeoWorks.
I have been fortunate to have been involved with some amazing people such as journalist Paul Lockyer and TCN 9’s Ray Martin’s Midday Show, written articles for Peter Blasina’s Video Camera Magazine in the early 1990’s with my love for Desktop Video and Animation and in the late 90’s providing tech support to Australian award winning cinematographer Don McAlpine ASC.
During the mid 90’s I launched with my partner Ready To Run Computer Services and Net Stuff Website Hosting & Design, in 2004 we sold the Ready To Run support business and relocated to Mandurah, Western Australia where I spent my time kayaking in the lovely peel inlet and designing websites. After 4 years of living in Mandurah, WA the slow pace and isolation of living 5,000 klms from friends and family caused me to move back to Sydney.
When I wasn’t working, I was exploring the world, having travelled throughout Australia, Asia, Europe and recently through North America combining my love for Roller Skating as a representative skater for Australian Roller Derby leagues representing in Las Vegas RollerCon since 2012.
I still have many places I want to visit that are on my bucket list including New Zealand, Canada and the International Space Station and I would love to visit Europe again especially Paris.
I’m currently looking for a full-time position in either a IT technology and/or Support role or a Web Developer role and willing to settle down near mu work responsibility.
