    Hi All,

    So I got contacted by neddy suggesting me to join this forum. I am a young web designer, in Sydney. Now I will say straight up I am not a massive, professional company, just someone trying to get a bit of a head-start in the industry.

    My site is www.scottnugent.net, so have a look if you're interested. I'm sure other web designers are much better here, but if you're looking for someone affordable and friendly, you know where to look. :p

    About myself a bit; I am 16, go to a selective high school (completing year 11, with accelerated HSC Software Design), also work for a database application company as a programmer, and love theatrical audio/lighting. I'm just an all-round nerd really.

    This site looks quite helpful and friendly, so I look forward to hanging round a bit. Also, if this post is breaking rules somehow I am sorry moderators! :)

    I think that's all for now...

    Cheers,
    Scott

    Hi Scott, welcome to DNT. Good to see another web designer on the forums, I myself am a full time web designer for a company on the coast. Before that I worked at Coles for about 4 years and I'm telling you, it feels good to finally start a 'career' where everyday you learn and grow. You will get there mate!

    My advice; go after your passion. Don't worry so much about money; i tried that (studied networking) and ended up back in web design. Go with what you love and find a way to make as much money out of it as you can.

    G'day Scott - hope you find the forums to be of use.

    Do you own any domains? What interests you about domaining?

    Thanks guys. :)

    Umm, well of course I own some domains, but I'm not really into the whole domaining thing. More of just a design guy. :) That may seem silly for this forum, but it looks interesting so hopefully that is OK.

    Yeah, I meant domains for domaining, obviously not your personal/business domain :)

    It's not silly to be on here if you're offering a service that goes with domaining :cool:

    Welcome Scott! Wow, I didn't realise you were only 16. This is an "R" rated forum - you need to be at least 18 to post. Ha ha - just kidding! :D

    I saw all your posts on VentraIP and I just thought you were someone who would be great to have on DN Trade.

    And there are some very "switched on" and successful members here - so I'm sure you will get to learn a lot as well.

    Enjoy.

    Awesome neddy!

    Do you mind if I ask what prompted you to think I would be good? :p

    Cheeky whippersnapper!

    I saw you had made 597 posts on VentraIP since July 2010, and I thought this guy is a "contributor".
    (I certainly didn't realise you were 16 - not that there is anything wrong with that at all!).

    And what made it for me was this particular post of yours in response to another member:

    :D:D

    Welcome Scott, good to see you are so driven and confident at such a pivotal age. We're not all domainers here.. good mix of web design, developers and marketers too.. not to mention the DIYers and those looking to develop their portfolios
