I am a writer and editor at TallAndTrue.com and blog on my eponymous website, RobertFairhead.com. I also write and narrate episodes for the Tall And True Short Reads storytelling podcast, which features my short stories, blog posts and other writing from Tall And True. I have also published several short story collections.

I became involved with Joomla! in 2008 when I used the platform to build a website for my local dog club.

I subsequently used Joomla! to develop several generations of the dog club website and for my son's primary school P&C website.

I also used Joomla! to create Tall And True, a website showcasing my writing - fiction, nonfiction and reviews - and the writing of Guest Writers.

I was involved with the Sydney Joomla! User Group (JUG) from 2008, presenting at monthly JUGs and helping organise and present at several JoomlaDay Sydneys. I presented at the inaugural JoomlaDay Australia in Brisbane in 2019 and regularly attend Joomla! Australia virtual meet-ups. 

I am creating websites with Joomla since the beginning, starting with more complex sites in 2007. Generally, since 2004, I am building websites and online-shops for small and medium sized companies.

My webagency webgras is located in Klosterneuburg, near Vienna, in Austria/Europe. We are a small team providing high quality Joomla websites.

I was co-founder of Joomla User Group Vienna and JoomlaDay Austria in 2015, and I am still co-organiser of both and a speaker on many Joomladays. Since then, I got more and more involved in the international Joomla community. Eventually, I joined the CMS Release team and became team lead in November 2020.

I love Joomla and all its capabilites and features, and I try to stick to the core as much as possible - "Just Joomla" is the way to go for me.

With nearly 25 years of experience in IT and web design, Chris has been designing websites for almost as long as the internet has been around. Starting in the education sector, creating websites, and managing IT for a selection of schools, Chris never considered that web design might be his future career – until an opportunity came along.

After creating a free website for his landscaper in 2014, Chris soon saw the potential for website creation as a career and, since 2016, has run Light Bulb Web Design full-time without ever looking back.
