Hi. I'm Nathan Budhu.

This is the hub of my digital development activities and acts an extension of my Linked In profile. It is essentially my Digital Developer Landing Page.

I'm a Front-End Developer by day, night and where ever spare minute of the day I can squeeze out a project or 3. When I magically have some free time I also create somewhat entertaining social media content, design T-shirts and manage n8itude ShopZone my online retail stores.

Delivering pixel perfect interactive solutions for a myriad of media applications as well as maintaining a keen eye for brand guidelines has been my mantra for every project.

My experience has aided my comfortability in any work environment from smaller companies to large agencies. This range has also allowed me to work on a variety of projects from large loyalty rewards applications to digital training and learning tools.

Whether you want to continue the conversation about your digital development role you want to fill or have an immediate need to solve your digital dilemma please don't hesitate to let me know.

I am DEEPLY experienced with brand identity and RETENTION.

I am keenly aware of brand guidelines.

I am good for your brand, your clients and your team.
