Meet deadSimpleTech

We are a human-centric software engineering and technical consultancy based in Kirikiriroa. We exist to make the lives of you and your clients better through the appropriate use of technology in ways that defend and support human flourishing.

I've joined the Chamber as I'm deeply passionate about helping every business and organisation have access to technology that's appropriate to their business and that works for them. I'm excited to meet Waikato businesses that could benefit from the judicious application of technology and to learn more about how they do business and how we could make their lives easier.

I really appreciate the slower pace of living, tight-knit communities and the beautiful natural environment. I also like the fact that this comes along with a city that's big enough for things to happen in.

I believe building relationships is the key to success in business!

To be honest, I'm still in the process of moving down from Auckland and still looking for a house at this moment in time but my wife and in-laws are Hamilton born and bred so have spent a lot of time here since my arrival from the UK. The thing I love the most about the Waikato is how everyone comes together for local events and initiatives to champion and support good causes and local businesses!
