I'm obsessed with the internet. I began building websites at age ten, and by sixteen, I'd built my own successful digital PR and photography business. You've probably seen my clients on shows like Celebrity Big Brother, Love Island and Geordie Shore.
In my late teenage years, I studied marketing in Ireland and New York, freelanced, wrote an award-winning marketing blog and ran Ireland's leading marketing event called Digital Marketing Summit.
Since then, I have specialized in acquisition and search engine optimization for platform companies. That's just a fancy way of saying I help them gain new customers by having them show up higher on Google.
I've worked with and advised multiple start-ups, global brands and Fortune 500 companies on digital marketing. These include million dollar hotel chain Le Germain, CRM software company HubSpot and telecommunications giant Verizon.
Right now, I help Wealthsimple, an online investment management platform, get found on Google. I take pride in creating search marketing strategies that gain new customers and bring financial services to everybody, regardless of age or net worth.
I work, write and Instagram from New York. When I’m not working on marketing you’ll probably find me exploring a new part of the world or spending time with my gorgeous Jack Russells, Minnie & Shadow.
