Marla Mitelman – Project manager
Marla got interested in the Web approximately 10 years ago in her native London. When her boss of the time let her loose on the company web site it was an the start of an addiction that’s still going strong today!
With over 9 years commercial experience project managing and producing for the web, her addiction has now become her vocation. Clients and projects include; Microsoft, Optus, Commonwealth Bank, Channel [V] and Toyota.
Marla’s other addictions/interests include watching live music and really cheesy TV.

Ruth is also very passionate about web standards and accessible design.

Melissa Cater – Writer
For the past 10 years I have been a writer, manager, and designer of online content. I am really interested in making sure that content is accessible, usable and findable and have found my place working where web content, information architecture, design and technologies intersect.
I run my own small business in Melbourne and work with clients ranging from small to medium companies, not-for-profits and government departments. I try to come up with solutions that help them to reach their audiences in an effective, appropriate and sustainable manner. This involves being business analyst, information architect, content designer, writer and producer, tester, project manager and more.
When not sitting at a computer, I can be found making things at my sewing machine, wandering around a gallery or escaping the city to have an adventure with friends on two wheels or on foot.

Since then he has worked on many exciting websites in a range of capacities, including front-end specialist, back-end developer and information architect.
