About

26-year old Digital Specialist in Web Development, PPC, SEO and Blogging/Social Media. I have worked since the age of 12 and I live to work; I have never not enjoyed it. My career started in Beauty Retail, I then became the most successful male skincare blogger in the industry whilst simultaneously continuing to develop my advanced Digital Marketing skills.

I started my own creative business utilising relationships within the industry. Whilst I enjoy this and my digital work, I found and find it incredibly solitary and enjoy working more as part of a team of similarly experienced people in order to collaborate.
