I was born and raised in Southend-on-Sea, Essex, and studied at Southend High and Kingston Uni before heading off to live in the Philippines. I moved back to the UK in 2000 and started in the web and Search Marketing sector. I worked at a number of search and in-house companies before launching my own SEO Agency - Ayima.
I’m married and have two beautiful and intelligent daughters. We moved to Oxfordshire in 2012 and now live in a village just outside Abingdon. We have an insane golden retriever called Brewster and above all things is how much I love pizza!
I am the Co-founder and Chief Operating Officer of Ayima – a leading Digital Marketing consultancy with over a hundred employees in six offices around the world.
Launched in 2007, Ayima is an award winning Search agency based in London with offices in New York, Raleigh, Vancouver, Stockholm and Manila.
My love of gadgets and technology has had a big impact on work as well as at home. Ayima was built on bespoke in-house technology and development.
I also co-founded the largest SEO industry networking event in the UK – LondonSEO, which has had 1,000s of attendees over the years.
I am a very creative person with a relentless drive and love of problem solving. So creating and building new business projects is a passion.
Outside of work I spend most of my time with family or friends, both in the UK and abroad. I also love every aspect of creating music and recently became a bit of a gym rat.
I come from a very close family and am lucky to have such amazing parents, a wonderful wife and two simply incredible daughters.
Music has always been a core part of my life. I’ve played in bands, toured and released albums, but now just record and mix in my home studio.
I’ve always loved to travel, so have been very fortunate to spend so much time overseas, for work and visiting friends around the world.
I recently decided to get healthy, so can always be found boxing, cycling or at the gym each day. Now I just need to cut out the biscuits!
