Hi there, I am a Search Engine Optimisation Specialist and I have built websites and mobile applications for SMEs and Large corporate orgainisations. I have managed sites that generate over a million unique visits a year, and I have run exclusive campaigns that make 50k + visits in just a few hours. Initially, I started as a software developer and then over time moved more into a Technical SEO role.

With the web continually advancing I believe it's essential to have an excellent technical foundation and knowledge of how the web works, this dramatically improves how I operate and allows me to implement more advanced A/B tests and keep up with the latest algorithms and changes to search. My appetite to learn new things and passion for statistics and data have helped me gain the skills I have and continue steadily improving my techniques.

Interests

Apart from studying and learning everything I can about SEO I also like to have a passion for statistics, I like to study trading and predictive analytics which also works very well with SEO and Digital Marketing. In my free time, I like to read and listen to audio books about a wide range of topics from psychology to health and fitness.

I am a huge advocate for remote working as you can build your own office just the way you like it. Saving hours of time and stress that comes from commuting and it's much more environmentally friendly, I personally have a standing treadmill desk which would be hard to have installed at any office and an under desk cycling machine. I also feel it shows complete trust between employer and employee and when you work for several clients as we do at a digital agency, unless you are with your client you are in effect always working remotely anyway.
