Lewis Hackfath

Born and bred in Coffs Harbour, I’ve lived here all my life attending school and university right here in my home town.

I started H.I.T Media Solutions as a way to earn a little bit of cash during my university studies as I found that most part time jobs conflicted with my university schedule, I found I had a flare for Web Design and achieved a High Distinction in this unit during my studies. I initially worked as a contractor for another local business, eventually working my way up to having my own clients both nationally and abroad.

Some time into running the business I diversified on what I was building to provide my clients with a one-stop-shop for their web design needs by offering Photography and Cinematography services to compliment the new site.

After testing and using a number of different web-hosting services but never finding one that delivered the performance and flexibility I wanted for my clients I built my own Web Server in Amazon Web Services to provide my clients another service by way of a managed hosting environment in the Australian Amazon data-centre. I now have clients operating on a shared hosting environment and on their own private virtual servers.

After discovering joy in performing arts and theatre I once again expanded the business to offer theatre and performance based services both in drag and out, and have now expanded into the production of a musical with our very first show “Twisted – The untold story of a royal vizier” in January 2021.

I enjoy working with clients from a wide range of backgrounds and industries and helping them realise their digital media potential and hope to work with you in the future.
