I currently work at AIA as a client facing Senior Digital Project Manager, working with some amazing clients on exciting projects. I love being involved throughout the entire project delivery process, from kickoff meetings, the creative process, and working with the dev team, to launching and maintaining websites. I currently help manage the project management and dev team, running daily standups, as well as managing some of our largest client websites.
I’ve always been interested in technology, both hardware and software, and how it affects our lives. My current role involves working with a SaaS platform in the recruitment advertising industry, but I keep up-to-date with breakthroughs and developments so I can better advise my clients and the company on new innovations and innovative ways of using technology. My role is changing as many of our clients focus more on how they can use technology to promote themselves and improve interactions with their customer base and employees.
My biggest strength is having a broad knowledge of many areas of digital production, having worked with sports betting brands, built a film streaming service, and now in recruitment advertising.
These are just some of the clients that I’ve been fortunate to work with. Projects include anything from mobile apps to complete careers sites, ad-funded video streaming to online gaming and betting products.
I graduated from Oxford Brookes University with a 2:1 BSc in Telecommunications and Electronics. It gave me an excellent foundation for a career in digital production and project management, as I studied a number of programming languages, digital signal theory and hardware development. My dissertation combined a hardware build with programming microchips using VHDL (a hardware description language).
I’ve always had an interest in technology and computers, starting programming on an Amstrad and playing with circuits and motors. My degree gave me a good grounding in coding and software, from which I moved towards agency work, specifically media production, magazine ads and digital work, and eventually into managing the build of large and complex web projects. I’ve spent my career so far working in specialised and boutique agencies in central London, often creating bespoke solutions for clients with a range of budgets and requirements.
For the last six years I’ve been focused entirely on managing projects as a producer and digital project manager. Projects have ranged from on-demand video streaming, PPV content, online gaming, mobile app production and corporate careers websites.

I can be engaged for a number of different services, from initial consultation to complete project management and builds. I can work within a company, working client-side as project manager, or as part of a creative team.
I also have the resources to fully manage projects, from initiation through to delivery. Over the years I have built up relationships with a number of creatives and developers who I can engage with to provide high-quality project support in areas including video creation, website design and app development.
If you’d like to discuss a project or find out more about how we could work together, send me a message with your contact information and I’ll get in touch.
Complete web builds, from initial scoping and initiation through to final delivery and maintenance. These could be single-page micro sites through to pay-per-view content sites.
From online campaigns, to branding and advertising, I can consult on your creative strategy and engage with the right people to successfully execute your campaigns.
From Google to Facebook to programmatic, I can help plan and manage a campaign, budget, creative execution, delivery and reporting.
Consultation on SEO best practices, and ongoing SEO strategy management. It’s important to note that SEO optimisation is a long process, and requires a content strategy. I can help with this process.
Setting up analytics and helping plan key performance indicators (KPIs), then reporting and adjusting in order to hit targets and goals.
I can plan and manage on-site shoots, editing and delivery of photography or video as part of your content strategy.
See below a selection of my past work and projects.
BT Contact centre careers
Managed the design and build of a new contact centre careers site for BT and their partner. This was a relatively fast turnaround, built in around 8 weeks. It was complicated by the fact there were 4 different parties involved, including an external development team, the client and their partners.
Daily deals tracker
The deals tracker was built to collate data from a number of daily deals sites, in order that the marketing company could produce reports on sales across different sites. We built software that would find new deals, and scrape sales and price data from a number of different sites. The system would also categorise the deals, based on the title and descriptions using a simple artificial intelligence.
Careers chat bot
As part of my research into new and emerging technologies I created a chatbot for one of our telco clients. Users could engage using Facebook messenger, ask it questions about the company, find out what roles are available in different locations, and link through to apply for any role they are interested in.
Video streaming with live betting odds
SportAuthority create compelling pre-game videos for sporting events. The players pull in and overlay live odds from the gaming partners, and link to the market page when a user clicks. I was retained to consult, plan and manage the build of the entire service. In addition to planning the architecture and managing the build, I also designed the players. The build was run using an Agile methodology over 2 week sprints, using Kanban to help plan and prioritise the project.
