What do you do at Moto Digital?
I’m the Operations Director so I help steer the technical development of our product (workflows, infrastructure, testing, adopting new technology etc.), make sure projects stay on course and are delivered within budget.
I still enjoy getting involved with designing, coding and testing and I’m fully accredited with Google AdWords and Analytics specialist – Google Certified Certificates
I also buy the bacon sandwiches on Friday.
What did you do before Moto Digital?
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Computing. I started in the aerospace industry (BAe Brough) working on monster IBM kit and their relational databases. After a stint at the Thompson Group (Evening Chronicle) I moved to a document management firm in the centre of Newcastle where my scanning software was sold into organisations like Transco, NHS, Iggesund Paperboard and Komatsu among many others, my last role was Systems and Infrastructure Manager for a large Law Firm in Sunderland.
I built my first website in 2000 and my first Google AdWords Pay Per Click campaign in January 2006 and the client still runs their business entirely off this advertising.
What do you do outside of Moto Digital?
It’s almost all family time. I like the centre sofas at the Jam Jar Cinema in Whitley Bay, getting lost in the maze at Cragside in Rothbury, especially enjoy the castle at Belsay Hall or at one of the beaches up the Northumberland Coast. I can’t escape that computer bug started in 1982 by the ZX Spectrum but these days its all about Minecraft with the kids.
