I formally trained as a Graphic Designer and after gaining a few years experience eventually headed up the graphics and marketing department at a small publishing house. I then started my own business in 1982. Over the following years I built up this design and advertising company servicing large Corporates and SMEs.
In 1992 I shifted the focus of my attention to providing multi-media training across a range of software applications on both Apple Macs (the original designers tool) and Windows, whilst at the same time continuing to practice on a day-to-day basis as a marketing and design consultant. Also, during this period, I identified the need to diversify and combine traditional marketing with the web-based e-marketing and in particular search engine marketing. Today, I divide my time between running the business, training and my first love – design.
