Geek Free are a team of professional experienced New Zealand web developers, web designers, graphic designers, and internet marketers who help business owners, like you, achieve big results on the web in an affordable, effective way without stressing you out.
Unlike many web design companies, Geek Free was born out of the necessity of finding a simple solution to getting on the web without having to go through the pain of dealing with geeks and people who actually knew little to nothing about marketing in the real world and running a Kiwi business day to day.

She is trained as an applied linguist, and during her years working as a teacher of English as a second language, she worked with a very wide range of people of all ages,and cultures. Rachel is a person who is passionate about language and is also one of those highly annoying people who goes around removing apostrophes from café menus and foolishly trying to correct friends’ grammar at dinner parties. Rachel is interested in travel and like many others, she is now zipping off in their campervan whenever she can. She also enjoys walking, swimming, cooking for friends and family, zooming around on her very cool orange e-bike or lying around with a good book.

Sales & Project Coordinator
Brendon will often be your first point of contact at Geek Free. Being in charge of sales, he’s the man to explain to you the various web design packages you can choose for your business and how we can help you with SEO and copywriting. Having studied IT and network engineering and then worked in the industry for over seven years, and usually in sales, Brendon is more than au fait with all the technical terminology. But don’t be alarmed - he knows how to break it all down so you’re not confounded by geek speak and confusing pricing. Life is just too short for all that. Brendon will also be your contact at Geek Free whenever you have an enquiry about your site or additional services. When Bredon is not chatting to clients and organising their accounts and sites, he likes to get out and about boating, mountain biking, and on road trips - particularly enjoying camping. Like many IT guys, Brendon also enjoys gaming and confesses to not making it to the gym quite as often as he would like.
