About Me.

As a Technical SEO, I’m completely self-taught. But I’ve worked with some great employers and people along the way which really helped me develop my understanding of search engines and digital marketing.

The early days...

From 2010 to 2013, I studied SEO and marketing in my own time as a hobby when I was working full-time in a local McDonalds. I took a keen interest in how search worked and decided to pursue it further as a career for myself. I’m now based in Ampthill, Bedfordshire but previously lived and worked in Milton Keynes.

Dan helped me to get my website permalinks in shape, sort out my sitemaps and make sure indexed links were redirected to the new URLS. He was quick, professional and very responsive. He was a huge help as this is where my technical SEO knowledge falls a bit short!

My first "real" job

I got my first ‘real job’ as a digital marketing apprentice based in Milton Keynes. I worked for a local plumbing and heating company. My role there was to manage the website and shadow their existing SEO consultant and learn as much as I could.

I picked things up, and soon developed a good knowledge of SEO and digital marketing. Over the two and half years that followed I was able to make a positive impact on the businesses website.

my first agency

After my apprenticeship I joined a local marketing company. There I managed my own accounts and campaigns, helping websites increase their traffic.

I covered a real variety of marketing areas, including SEO, PPC, Social Media and more. After working there for just over 18-months an opportunity came up that I could not refuse…

Joining aira...

I joined Aira in November 2017 and am still part of the team today. The company was co-founded by Paddy Moogan and Matt Beswick. Both well established personalities in the SEO world. Even now, Aira continues to be one of only a handful of marketing agencies that features on Moz’s Recommended Agency List.

And recently we were voted the best large SEO agency in the UK!
