I have a broad range of technical skills (php, mysql, html, xhtml, css). I have built bespoke systems to handle affiliate data feed downloads, processing and publishing via my own price comparison site. I am also familiar with using API's to get access to live data and utilise the Google Adwords API to update online campaigns with live prices every few minutes.
I have project managed the specification, sourcing and delivery of six figure web projects delivered by external developers.
I have broad experience of the online search landscape and have had access to all hitwise industries over a period of several years. I have run PPC campaigns spending £80k+ per month and project managed SEO implementation on and off page.
My most recent formal education is an MBA (with distinction) from University of Leeds. I also hold a management diploma and a degree in Mechanical Engineering (2:1).
My early work experience prior to my MBA was in auto and industrial manufacture in the USA, UK and Europe. I managed a factory employing 60+ people T/O £4m+ reporting to a boss in the US.
Post MBA I set up an online advertising business in Leeds which sold up to £50m of goods per year.
I now work in my home town of York on two main projects:-
EnginRoom: The online arm of my business runs a price comparison website and adwords campaigns.
Barker & Ainsworth Developments: This is literally a real bricks and mortar project. We buy period terrace houses in need of some TLC, refurbish and resell in top condition.
I am looking for other interesting projects to utilise my skills, give me the variety I need to keep me interested and help fill my significant spare time.
