Web Designer & Developer from Melbourne, Australia
Howdy! I'm a web designer & developer running my own business, Maddison Designs. I live in Melbourne, Australia.
I usually spend way too much time on my computer designing, coding, tweeting or just generally causing mischief. On the rare occasion I'm not online, you'll find me on the couch watching a movie.
