My clients, a small group of ambitious brands, hire me to take ownership and drive the customer-led personalisation strategy forward. To help you build a better shopping experience for your customers before and after the sale.

MY ECOMMERCE BACKGROUNDBuilding and growing Ecommerce Brands For 20 Years
Wearing the hats of employee, director, ecommerce business owner & consultant.
Finding my feet at a startup online magazine subscription retailer way back in 1996. When animated gifs first roamed the 'net and web browsers were at the version 1.0 stage.
4 years on, I moved on to Priceline.com taking the role of European Marketing Director. Learning sustainable growth at a market innovator who are now the world's largest travel company.
In 2004 I launched my own ecommerce business. From 0 to £2m. bootstrapped. Doing the things you've done. Balancing time and energy marketing my business and running my business.
For the past 10 years my time has been dedicated to my ecommerce consulting business. Working with founders and in-house teams to drive more revenues without increasing ad spend through the advanced implementation of technology-led personalisation strategies and continual optimisation. It makes scaling easier and more profitable.
