Meet Your New Best Friend
Hi, I’m Nate, I am the founder, website designer, and technical guru, here at Green Turtle Web Creations. I have worked for the past 10 years in the IT industry, starting from a basic phone and telephone IT support, to management and IT administrator roles.
I had the honour to support the USAF at RAF Lakenheath, as a systems administrator for the 48th Contacting squadron, before leaving there to start my own ventures. I’m multi-disciplined in a variety of technical aspects, form pc and laptop troubleshooting, IT and Cyber Security, Website Design, HTML and CSS coding, as well as non-IT roles, such as business management, marketing and social media marketing and photography.
Website design is not just about the building, its the preparation, and education you can offer to your clients, making them a part of the website project, it brings meaning and purpose to the website and makes it that little bit more special
Green Turtle Web Creations is named after my love of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, you may notice the subtle colours that match my favourite turtle (Michalangelo), and the unique URL that the Turtles are using
How Were The Turtles Born?
Green Turtle Web Creations opened its doors in October 2016. I had spent a few months unemployed, and despite attempting to find work, I was unsuccessful, but not to be beaten, I decided that the best way to find work, was to create a little piece of my own nerd magic.
At the time of me deciding to set up a studio, I was scratching my head at what to do, I’m heavily focused on website design and development, mainly using WordPress, but also in smart technology, cybersecurity, and IT-based environments, but deciding on what to focus on was proving difficult. In the end, it was decided for me, as I was approached by a friend to build her website for her new photography business, so website design it was.
Now the name Green Turtle is quite interesting, When It’s your own studio, you have the choice to name it how you want. I believe that quirky and unique names that reflect your own personality are the way forward. I could have picked any generic name that represented website design but I’m a huge nerd and am not ashamed of it. One of my biggest loves was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I grew up watching this, and continue to love these green dudes even as an adult, so it seemed fitting to name something that reflects this crazy passion and enjoyment for things that mean most to me, and how I would go on to building and designing websites and offering technology services to local businesses. Those of you with a keen eye may also notice some of the colour references across the site which are references to the turtle’s colours.
