About Me

Over the past 40 years, I've been fortunate to run or own small to medium businesses with well-documented quantified success, (see below). Currently living in Southam Warwickshire where I'm engaged in developing the local market for Wix products.

I work from the business owner's perspective and what they expect their business website to achieve.

Good user experience and visual details are essential to transform them into effective SEO planning for greater impact on the web. My approach leans towards minimalist design and I embrace simple and elegant style. 

Clients served come from a broad spectrum of industries and we focus on digital marketing techniques, animation, web apps and platforms in partnership with Wix and their exciting new Wix Studio design platform.

Personal Abilities & Attributes

A target ambition of mine was to enter the world of senior management with dedication and commitment to achieve this goal it became a reality, first in area sales management, sales manager, managing director and owning and running my own businesses. During my career many challenges presented themselves, how to penetrate home and overseas markets, how to run a business profitably and how to be stress free.  


As managing director Wicksteed Leisure my role also included developing overseas markets and building on the existing network of agents and distributors, It was fortunate to meet Tom Canon & Mike Willis experienced marketeers with Reckit & Coleman who developed the course exporting overseas. It was a live exercise and taught invaluable marketing strategies & techniques on how to define and penetrate overseas markets. 

During my work life, I faced many personal & business challenges the engineering training I received taught me how to identify problems and provide workable solutions this attribute carried forward throughout my career. As my old boss Ken Clarke used to say "the hard part is identifying the problem once identified you will find the solution". Details of my many business achievements are qualified under the experience section.
