Hi, I'm Tom. I've worked in digital marketing for as long as I can remember... from starting out as a freelancer to fund my way through Uni, to managing the marketing team at an award winning digital agency (PushON), before managing both the search channels for a £100m+ turnover pure-play fashion retailer (Missguided).

I've now gone full circle and I'm once again dedicated to maximising online ROI for my diverse range of freelance clients.
