I am the Digital Marketing Manager for Inspired Show Homes, an interior design company based in Derby, UK. In 2018 I completed my BSc in Information Technology at the University of Derby (1:1 grade). Through education, I have explored many branches of computing and IT including networking, data analytics and emerging technologies but my passion lies with the web (both development and marketing). I am passionate about the user experience and believe that systems should be as efficient and satisfactory as possible. I am also the winner of the 2018 O'Reilly Academic Prize for best Information Security and Assurance article.

My final year dissertation was also related to this as I studied the potential issues of mobile first user interface and web design (including usability, performance and SEO). I have studied/worked in website design/development and digital marketing for 5 years and in that time I have gathered experience in the following:

  • HTML and CSS
  • JavaScript and jQuery
  • Search Engine Optimisation
  • Google Analytics
  • Search Advertising and PPC
  • User Experience and Customer Mapping
  • Usability research
  • Wireframe and Prototype creation using Balsamiq and Axure
  • Responsive/Mobile-first design
  • Social media management

More generally, I also have knowledge of:

  • Data analytics using SAS, Python and Watson
  • PC hardware including building and maintenance
  • Emerging Technologies such as Blockchain and IoT
  • Advanced knowledge of Shopify and Wix website builders
