How long have you been working at Platform81? 8 years

Quickly sum up a day in the life of an agency Director… In the office for around 7.30am. Quick run through emails and then make the guys the first brew of the day! Normally there’s a few technical natured jobs that I sort out in the mornings, whether it’s moving websites or solving problems. Then afternoons tend to be for meetings, winning new business and meeting up with existing clients to see how we can help them.

What would you be doing if you weren’t working at Platform81? I’d imagine I would have setup something very similar if I wasn’t doing Platform81. Something innovative where I can feel proud of what I’m doing… Something technical…

Describe your dream holiday? Anywhere abroad, lay by a pool, being served ice cold beer…

Favourite food? Chinese

Talk us through your perfect night out… My perfect night would be go to a pub with friends. Beer was free, no queue at the bar and we had someone driving to take us home… Never going to happen!

Dream date?  Michelle Keegan

If you could give one piece of advice to anyone looking to improve their online presence what would it be? I’m a firm believer of keeping websites simple and straight to the point. I’ve been doing it enough years to have seen some horrendous website designs. People will be viewing your website for only a handful of reasons. Whether it’s to purchase a product, find your contact details or find out about a service you offer. Make it as easy as possible for users to find this information…

Describe yourself in 3 words… Cool, relaxed, Legend.

Tell us about your most embarrassing moment?  Most recent was probably my stag do when I was dressed up as a Scottish Maid.

Finally, what’s your guilty pleasure? Geordie Shore!!!
