About Marty

Hi, I’m Marty and I'm a web developer from Melbourne, Australia.

I am co-owner of Mity Digital, a bespoke digital agency in Melbourne. I’m a little geeky, a little nerdy, but all-round nice guy (so I’m told). I love pulling my sleeves up and getting stuck into some serious coding.

After high school, I spent time at the University of South Australia earning two degrees – a Bachelor of Computer and Information Science and a Bachelor of Media Arts (Interactive Multimedia/Web Development). While the system.out.println of Java is no longer in my eyes, the object oriented software development skills and database logic skills from the computer science component, paired with the focus on usability and accessibility on the interactive multimedia side have given me the structure and concepts to become an object-oriented programmer for the web, as well as give me the ability to work as both a back-end and front-end developer.

In the back-end, I’ve spent over 15 years professionally developing PHP websites on a LAMP stack. In the front end, responsive layouts and progressive enhancement are my strongest beliefs, with a focus on SCSS, jQuery and most recently, VueJS.

For me, the biggest opportunity exists to help make the end user’s experience better - maybe requiring less clicks, or maybe a better workflow - but developing something special is so rewarding. I take so much pride in the quality of my work – from a coding perspective through to debugging and the user experience – and write intelligent code to get the job done.
