Digital Downpour is a small owner/operator company offering I.T. Support, Consulting and Web design services to small businesses throughout the Cairns, Northern Beaches and Port Douglas regions.
Welcome to Digital Downpour, my name is Neil and I am a qualified PC technician and Network Engineer with over a decade of I.T. support experience in a variety of technologies from home/small business solutions to enterprise level I.T. management, as well as 17 years experience creating modern, responsive websites as a Web Developer.
I joined the IT industry at the ground level, building DELL workstations in the Brisbane factory before taking part in enterprise level roll-outs and help desk positions across the state with Data#3. In early 2012 I took a position as a systems administrator with a major North Queensland developer which lead to an IT management position a few years later as the company transitioned through a change of ownership.
During the transition, I worked closely with a Brisbane based IT company that was consulting throughout the sale, eventually joining their team as an IT Support Engineer once the sale was complete.
In early 2017 I left the corporate world to establish Digital Downpour and focus on providing enterprise level, yet cost effective I.T. support directly to small and medium business in the North Queensland region.
My web development experience includes both being a freelance and studio designer. Over this time I have been fortunate to witness the evolution of trends and techniques used in the industry and strive to incorporate these into my clients’ projects, from simple small business sites to complex web applications required by larger organisations.
