I have over 4 years digital delivery experience, on both client side and agency, working on a number of exciting projects.

During my career I have worked within several roles that have allowed me to work with a range of digital media including web, social media, video production, design and print. This along with an in-depth knowledge of SEO has provided a huge grounding within digital marketing and delivery.

As a project manager I rely on my experience of digital marketing, passion of web technology and business acumen to deliver for clients. I have been lucky enough to work on some exciting projects and with some very talented people. I am self starter who never stops learning so that I can push myself and those around me.
