nMac – say “ehn-mack” is the online home of Neil MacNeil – strange but true.
I’ve been working with Internet technologies since 1986, way before the words “world wide web” were even conceived.

I’ve implemented systems for corporates like Unilever, Telecom New Zealand, Cadburys and Air New Zealand, and done my stint as a management consultant with Deloitte and later with Ernst & Young. I really began to specialize in all things Internet while working as an SAP Basis consultant integrating the SAP R/3 system with the Web back in the late nineties. Since then I’ve been a founder of a ‘dot-com’ startup, an Associate Professor of Media and Design in Japan, and for the last five years, a self-employed developer and designer working with clients all over the world, from the nmac-nerve-center near Nelson, New Zealand.

I’ve had a strong interest in usability and design since my days as a post-grad studying Human Computer Interaction, and this remains a cornerstone of what I do.

You could call me a geek that speaks human, I understand and work with all the techno mumbo jumbo, but I don’t need to bore my clients with it. I work hard to understand what clients need, and use my business, design and technical knowledge to deliver solutions that are effective, easy to use, and supported for the long haul. I’ve been blessed to work with some amazing associates over the years, and if I can’t do “it”, I invariably know someone who can.

If you are looking for a way to make the Internet really work for your business,
then get in touch.

nMac lives with his amazing wife and equally amazing boys with their two Bergamasco dogs (to keep the Tigers away), near the village of Upper Moutere, Nelson, New Zealand.

A proud Scot, New Zealand has been his adopted home for over 20 years. In all that free time (?) nMac hikes, bikes, paraglides, climbs, skis and catches trophy brown trout on number 16 dry flies – sometimes all in the same day.

His boys agree that he is very good at cooking eggs.
