My experience stems from a combination of formal education and my ongoing work experience in the digital marketing field.

Nine to Five, I have been working as an integral part of the Digital Surfer team, where I combine my SEO expertise with creative thinking to produce award-winning campaigns for clients I work with. As an SEO & Digital Marketing Specialist, I pride myself on partnering with clients to help drive real business growth through a variety of digital strategies.

Outside of work, My passion sees me constantly working on my own portfolio of websites to ensure I can keep up with the latest trends and strategies. This dedication is what allows me to stand out and produce high-quality results for businesses like yours.


Boasting an impressive educational resume. I had the pleasure of spending 5 years living & studying on scholarship in the US where I graduated from Western Michigan University with a Bachelor of Business Administration majoring in Digital Marketing & eCommerce. WMU is at the forefront of the digital space being one of the first universities in the country to offer a designated digital marketing degree program.

My degree is also complimented by having completed a Certificate III in Media from TAFE NSW & several other industry certifications. While I believe that having a formal education is a great way to enhance your skills, I still believe nothing beats actual time on the tools when it comes to digital marketing & SEO.

My excitement for continual growth has seen me giving back to the digital marketing program at WMU through participating in their mentoring program where I have been lucky enough to mentor several great students.
