Amanda Gonzalez

Web designer and copywriter

Coogee, NSW |

A reluctant member of Generation Y, Amanda leapt off the soloist cliff in 2007 after working too long at a Big 4. As the owner of Untangle the Web, Amanda enjoys helping small business owners who are in the complete dark about 'computers'. Her business designs, copywrites and photographs for small business owners, so they don't have to waste valuable time looking for each individual professional - professionals they don't even know how to qualify.

Amanda's blog focuses on guiding small business owners through the fundamentals of design, copywriting and marketing techniques to strengthen their small business. Her obsession with books is causing her hallway to narrow alarmingly. Amanda lives in Sydney's Coogee with her husband Alan and their boy Lex.
