I'm MD of Key Multimedia, a digital agency in Dorchester, Dorset
Introduction
I'm the MD of Key Multimedia Ltd,where we develop websites and run SEO and Social Media campaigns for clients. I regular run seminars and workshops on web-related topics and write the odd Journal piece. I have a cracking team behind me at KM. My ever patient missus, Carol and two beautiful girls offer inspiration and grounding. If the wind is up you will probably find me down the beach Windsurfing, trying to keep up with the latest freestyle moves. Or out putting the miles in on my road or mountain bike.
