Hi. My name’s Lachlan, and I’m a jack of all trades. Well, quite a few, anyway.

Writing, photography, web development, system integration. These things keep me busy, but I love them. I love them so much that I want to share them with you and the rest of the world.


A little about me.

I was born and raised on the East coast of Australia before moving to London, England in 2004 at the age of 13. I finished school and worked for a while there, before moving back to Australia in 2011.

I’m currently an undergraduate student at Avondale College, studying a Bachelor of Science in Biology and Computer Science. When I’m not studying I’m usually either writing for MakeUseOf, taking photos or playing drums.


The keyboard is mightier than the sword.

I’ve always been a writer, one way or another. When I was at school I always looked forward to creative writing and poetry, and somehow I always managed to do well when it came to writing reports and explaining things.

I’ve been writing for MakeUseOf for about a year now. In that time I’ve written guides ranging from PC components to eBook management to Bitcoin.

You can click on any cover to download it from the MakeUseOf website. I hope you enjoy reading the guide as much as I enjoyed writing it and that it can teach you something new. Let me know what you think!


Hey, look! Pretty pictures!

I love photography. Being able to capture a moment that you  experience and being able to share that moment with others from your exact point of view is fantastic. I use an app called Hipstamatic on my iPhone to record my experiences. Here’s a small collection of some of my favourites:

Just click on a picture to see it full-size. If you want to see more, you can always head over to my Flickr photostream.


Drop me a line.

If you like what you see and would like me to help you with something, get in touch. I’m sure we can work something out.
