About Me

My name’s Jack. I grew up in Robin Hood’s Bay, and have lived and worked in Whitby since 2007.

I spent the first few years of my career working at Computer Doctor North East, which was based at Larpool Lane Industrial Estate. Alongside small business IT support and sales I developed numerous websites and began writing web-based software to help businesses operate more efficiently.

In 2010 I became self employed. Initially I worked from home, and later moved into an office in town. The office building had previously been a public toilet, but was converted into a bright, airy and peaceful space conveniently positioned at the top end of Skinner Street.

Between 2010 and 2021 I worked with a wide range of businesses and other organisations, providing design and technology services including website development, hosting, SEO and social media management.

By 2021 I was ready for a change and was offered the opportunity to join the team at Nature’s Laboratory as Director of Technology. This was a challenging but exciting role. I was able to use my expertise to develop new IT systems, design several new websites and build a bespoke factory management system.

Hello Technology Ltd was founded in spring 2024. Having spent several years working in a larger organisation I realised that I missed the flexibility of freelance work and decided to return to self-employment.

Whilst Hello Technology is a new company, it is also the continuation of much that has come before. I will continue to work with Whitby’s small businesses, providing design, technology and IT support services. I am looking forward to continuing to grow as a designer and developer and helping organisations of all kinds make the most of technology.


P.S. I’ve generally used ‘we’ and ‘our’ when writing the copy for this website. While I am planning on remaining the only employee, I do hope Hello Technology will grow through partnerships with other freelancers, so I decided to use plurals when referring to the work Hello Technology undertakes.

I've been designing websites and developing IT solutions since 2007.

From small business websites to bespoke hardware and web-based software, I've tackled projects of all kinds. I'm here to help you thrive.

Beyond Work

I live in Whitby with my family. We love living by the sea and enjoying the wonderful surrounding countryside. I’m a keen runner and particularly enjoy running the Cleveland Way between Whitby and Robin Hood’s Bay. We’re part of Grace Community Church in Loftus.

Office Van

Rather than working from a bricks and mortar office, when I established Hello Technoogy I decided to try something a little different. My office is a 1991 VW T4 California. It’s left hand drive, and is beginning to show its age – a bit like me!

With a bit of care and attention it’ll be the perfect vehicle to work from, complete with double glazing, proper heating and unlimited mobile WIFI.
