I’m a graduate of the fine institution that is QUT in gorgeous Brisbane, Australia. I hold degrees in Business and Information Technology – majoring in Marketing, IMC (Integrated Marketing Communications) and Information Systems.
I’ve been designing websites since 1997 and started out using Netscape Composer. I managed to get my hands on a copy of Macromedia Dreamweaver and Adobe Photoshop soon after and immersed myself in all things web design. It took a while before I even got my own domain and learnt about online marketing.
I know how to code HTML and CSS from scratch too! I’d love to learn how to customise WordPress themes from scratch but when I need something different, I go to ThemeForest. I am learning through Learnable.com which as a tonne of great resources from the good folks at Sitepoint.
I love using Hotjar to track user behaviour on websites I manage and you can get your free account here: https://www.hotjar.com/r/r4af6.
The digital space is where I feel at home and can mix it up when talking about web design, SEO and other aspects of search marketing and social media, UX and UI and even server architecture. Of special interest of late is content marketing which I’m diving right into. I remain deeply passionate about SEO and search marketing as a whole.
Right now, I’m looking at expanding my focus to cover a lot more of the digital world and it seems mobile and UI/UX are the next steps for me. As always, I’m looking to become a more confident digital marketing expert.
