About Me


I work at Jakala managing media buying for several clients. I am responsible for a mix of Google Ads, Microsoft Ads, Facebook, Instagram as well as Programmatic advertising. I want to get into high quality ads mainly for iPad and magazine publishing. I enjoy building websites in my spare time, especially for small businesses. I have worked on about 100 projects varying with small to large budgets. WordPress is my favourite as clients are able to make small changes to the text themselves. It makes writing code easier as I don’t have to do it all myself. I customise the existing code to what they want.

People aren’t aware that many websites are only half-built. I optimise all of my sites as best as possible within budget. This includes sitemap verification, metadata, semantics, Google My Business, image optimisation, CDN, SSL, Yoast, and more. I also do PPC advertising with Google Ads, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn.

I have a passion for travel. I love what I do. I take my work with me. I have travelled around the globe while building websites for clients. There’s nothing like being able to sit in a cafe in Prague while placing ads for a travel magazine, or working while sitting outside in a British garden. I am slowly working on a photography book – possibly online, of my travels.

I have two Master’s degrees earned from some of the world’s best universities while studying abroad in NY, London and Paris. I have studied at City University of New York, New York University, American University of Paris, and HULT International Business School. I have a focus on small business and digital marketing.

Rent Control 2024

Bring Back Rent Controls Have you had enough of unfair rent increases? Are you being intimidated in your own home from fear of your landlord? Join the London Renters Union to stand up for your rights. I did and we are rallying. We are getting together in May to build up momentum to reestablish Rent Controls in the UK. They were abolished in the 80s during Thatcherism. Recently, I left my Mezzanine flat on Kensington Gardens after four years. I had just

Apple vs. PC

Decisions, Decisions. I spend a lot of time in front of a computer. So much that it has to feel comfortable. I believe that a good work environment creates more productivity and higher quality work. I have had many computers in my career. I have grown attached to Macintosh. It produces much higher quality graphics than a PC. In fact any creative material is always best made on a Mac. In my NY apartment, I had a Mac Pro with cinema screen

The Serviced Apartment Side Hustle

Can I Get a Break? It was around 2006 while I was studying full-time for a Bachelor's degree. I was really busy working 15 hour days most of the week. I was working in French fine dining which requires an immense amount of tenacity while also juggling the cross-country track team and building websites freelance. It knocked the wind out of me. Really. One night, I went on Craig's List and put an ad out for a roommate share. I had over
