My name is Marty

I am a web developer landscape photographer group fitness instructor

Hi there, I’m Marty.

If you’ve seen the text above, you’ll know I am a web developer, landscape photographer and group fitness instructor.

Originally from Adelaide, I’m now living and working in Melbourne and co-owner of Mity Digital. By day I’m a PHP developer and front end web developer, and by night a Les Mills group fitness instructor.

Outside of work, I enjoy landscape photography, the odd casual video game, and have a passion for music, and of course, playing with my two cats, Toby and Zack.

I've created this site to share a bit more about myself, as well as a blog of more technical content that doesn't really connect with the audience on the Mity website.
