I've always tried to live life presently and to the fullest. Some of the things I love to do in my spare time include exploring nature, reading SEO blogs, travelling to new places, watching sports (huge Liverpool FC fan here!), and sharing meals with friends and family. Most days you can find me spending quality time with my lovely son Teddie.

In 1991, I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts in Humanities from Greenwich University in London.

I moved to San Francisco in 1995 and worked at Deloitte & Touche as a business consultant and later was head hunted to work in Palo Alto for a online finance start up. I cashed in my chips and spent 2 years at University of California Berkeley Extension 1999-2001 learning PHP, CSS, HTML to capitalise on the dot com explosion and developed an interest in Search Engine Optimisation when it was in its infancy.

I relocated back to the UK in 2002 and was an early adopter of WordPress in 2005 to use my PHP skills and started building websites.  Digital marketing consulting and Internet marketing came next as part of my digital journey.

I truly love SEO and WordPress and I want to show you how to make better websites, make money from your projects, and live the life you dreamed of.
