About 15 years ago I was pumping out hand made flyers and tickets for local band nights and raves when I got a phone call from a friend. He asked me if I knew anything about the internet: "you must know about it because you have an email address".
And so my online career commenced.
First port of call was with Microsoft, (designing and building a new Games website
), I then swanned over to Apple (converting the US site to English for the UK market), Canon and various other top notch global companies. Remember, this was a long time ago (in internet years) when only the biggest companies could afford anything resembling a professional website.
Fast forward and I found myself at a subsidiary of +Canon UK based in the heart of what is now known as Tech City .
It was a grand job, with brilliantly inspirational people but, eventually, had to come to an end. That's when I set up the online production agency Point and Stare
, around 6 years ago, and I'm still loving it.
Coding for WordPress, Google+, social media, client liaison, contract negotiating, IFTTT, ... yep, that's essentially, my day with Point and Stare
At night you can usually find me huddled over a Google Hangout, annoying people on the 4Networking forum
, writing WordPress plugins
or generally planning my next move which currently includes putting the final touches to the Hangout Staff
I'll do World domination ... right after I finish writing this piece of code.
