Meet the team

Aidan Curran
Aidan Curran has been working professionally in the field of web design and development since 1998 when he joined Agile Software Corporation, San Jose, California, initially assuming the roles of webmaster and web developer.

In 2001 when Agile decided to move from a Windows based business software suite to a web browser based product, Aidan’s skills and expertise in web design and development were called upon in designing the web based version of the product. Aidan moved into the position of Web User Interface Designer for Agile’s software suite. In this role Aidan gained very valuable expertise in web usability, user experience and user interface design for the web.

Following a long successful career at Agile, Aidan took the position of web developer with Symantec Corporation in Dublin, Ireland. In this role Aidan gained experience with large scale web operations and added a new array of technical tools to his web developer’s toolbelt.

In 2006 Aidan moved along with his wife, Mitzi, and son, Liam, to New Zealand and settled in sunny Nelson to enjoy the great lifestyle New Zealand has to offer and bring up their children in an ideal family environment. Once in Nelson, Aidan and Mitzi decided to start their own web design business and Stellar Web Works was born. Since then Aidan has been busy building websites for business all around New Zealand and overseas.
