I'm not here right now - please leave a message while I'm in South America... :o)

Greyhead will be taking a break from writing code, ranting on Twitter and drinking too much Sainsbury's wine to spend a month or two in South America

From the 8th May 2013, I'll be in South America armed only with a backpack and my stupidity. The first stop will be Fortaleza on Brazil's North-East coast, and then after that I've loosely decided that I'm going to head clockwise round the coast towards Rio de Janeiro.

I'll be posting updates on Twitter (@alexharries) and sending photos up to alexharries on Flickr.com, so if you'd like to keep track of my daft shenanigans, those are probably the best places to look.

As I type this, I'm actually staying at my parents for a couple of nights (at the age of 31... Oh, the shame ;) while I do a last kit check, wrap up some essential Greyhead Designs business paperwork, and make sure I've got all my travelling ducks lined up in a nice row before I go.

Oh, and I'm completely bricking myself, but I know I have nothing to worry about as long as I'm sensible and look both ways before crossing the street. It's just pre-match jitters, I know :o)

Anyway, that's enough from me. I'll be listening on alexinsouthamerica at greyhead dot co dot uk if you want to drop me an e-male!



Quick update, February 2014

So I failed woefully at keeping this website up-to-date during my travels, but I've covered about a zillion miles, stayed in oodles of hostels, didn't die not even once despite the best efforts of the gringo-despising Bolivians and their food poisoning and lack of oxygen.

I'll be back in the UK next week when I may or may not put some of Munkeh Traveller's diary rantings onto the interwebs.

Cheers :)


Another update, March 2015

Wow, I was really rubbish at updating this page when I got back, wasn't I? Oh well, I'll post my photo galleries here soon. Possibly... :)


What's this then?

When I’m not trying to kill myself in the gym or in a swimming pool, or trying to take photos which usually look like they were shot during an earthquake, I tend to push pixels around webpages and - occasionally - posters, newspapers, magazines and other paper-based mediums. Sometimes, I even get paid to do it… ;o)

Apparently, I'm not-too-bad at putting together websites; that means that, once we've worked out what it is you want your website to do, and roughly how you want it to look, I take a content management system (usually Drupal), assemble and configure the various plug-ins needed to make your site do what you want it to, whip up the site's theme via some slicing and dicing in Potatoshop (that's Photoshop for normal people), test it, add in any content you have, and show you how to use the site in a one-to-one training session (well, that's roughly how these things work, but there's always some room for flexibility of course).

If you like what you see here and would like to have a chat, please get in touch.

This is just a small selection of my past work, and I must admit I've been pretty terrible at updating my portfolio with some of my more-recent work. So, while this page isn't necessarily the best or the brightest of my productions, I hope you'll be able to get an idea of my style and how I like to work.
