I have over 30 years experience working with businesses in various capacities and for the last 20 years I have been extensively involved in direct marketing, digital marketing and web development. I am currently a partner in JEL Media, a rapidly expanding digital creative design and marketing agency based in Cornwall and Wiltshire.
I know what it takes to succeed online and I have worked with many businesses, bloggers and professionals to ensure their online success.
For bespoke websites and applications I use PHP and the Laravel framework. For more general, content focused projects, I am able to program WordPress and make it do whatever is required to ensure the objectives are met.
I have been involved with digital marketing, across a broad range of niches for a very long time. I know what works, and what doesn't, and I am well-placed to formulate a digital marketing strategy for businesses that seek to gain a significant competitive advantage and really stand out in the digital marketplace.
I operate my own web-hosting business, publish several well known and very popular websites, and I am heavily engaged in the learning process that sees me constantly seeking to expand my skills and knowledge further in order to better serve my clients.
I am also heavily into personal development and motivation. Anyone following me on Twitter gets a daily dose of inspiration and I make it a point to lift people up when I can and help them to achieve their full potential in life.
Currently based in Cornwall, however I also spend a lot of time in Wiltshire.
My knowledge of computing extends into a passion for Linux. I am an avid user of Ubuntu and I love tinkering with servers, breaking them, fixing them, optimising them, and then destroying them to do it all over again just for fun!
All my development is done on a local server, then deployed to Github before being pulled into production. I host my clients on a range of technologies, depending on their requirements and budget - this can include shared hosting to keep costs down, or a more bespoke solution on Amazon AWS or Digital Ocean. All Laravel-based projects are deployed to Digital Ocean via Envoyer and Laravel Forge.
I love to learn! I am a life-long learner and a pro student at Treehouse where I seek to keep abreast of new technologies and workflow practices.
Above all else... I love what I do! It's not a job or a profession, it's fun. And I like nothing more to help others to achieve their goals and aspirations using technology. I have helped many business owners discover the true power of the internet to transform and grow their businesses in ways they never thought possible.
