A little about myself…
Melbourne raised and bred. I always knew I wanted to work in technology in some form or another. I snagged my first job in SEO in 2009, and then moved to a friend’s start-up SEO company. After a year or so there, I came across to WME to gain experience in a larger agency environment.
Outside of work, I like to treat myself to a good feed, and a sci-fi movie or two. Can also be seen going for a ride to the hills (Marysville etc), or partaking in some regretful online shopping.
When was the first time you heard about the internet?
I actually can’t remember my first internet experience (apart from the bleep-blurp sounds of those awesome dial-up modems). But, the first time I got into computers was when the game Mortal Kombat came out in 1992. My brother and I had to buy a new PC each time the next game came out, just to keep up with the demanding graphics (for the early 90’s). Then the movie “Hackers” came out, and naturally I became heavily involved with rollerblading!
What is the most rewarding part of your job?
There’s actually quite a lot of rewarding aspects to what we do. The results we deliver for our clients can really be life changing so it’s great to hear all the different success stories along the way. Whether it’s a client opening a new location, expanding with additional staff or moving from retail to wholesale are just a few examples. Also, having a very familiar and professional team really makes the work day an enjoyable experience. Knowing that you have highly skilled people supporting you gives you an added layer of confidence and reassurance on day to day tasks.
My Grandpa had one of the very first computers in Australia for his accounting business – it was the size of a large room and had ZERO games on it!
