Work History

At Bluewave, I design and implement digital marketing and growth hacking campaigns for businesses worldwide. I co-ordinate a strategic mix of AdWords, Facebook PPC, SEO, website optimisation, email/marketing automation, social media and content marketing for customer acquisition.

Utilising over 10 years of hands on SEM/SEO experience, combined with 18 years of technical web development and design knowledge I have the technical knowledge to get results in competitive markets and increase market share while improving ROI.

During this time I have also developed strong skills in data science and analytics, which allows me to find correlations between all aspects of a clients business and provide in depth, actionable insights, dashboards and reports.

I strongly believe in using all digital marketing channels available to provide the right strategic mix for each client, combined with continuous A/B testing and CRO to deliver cost effective and adaptive campaigns that continue to deliver results in an ever changing marketplace.

Over the past year I have also been working with a number of start-ups in early stages as a technical and growth consultant, helping with both product development and initial growth strategies.
