Hi I'm Thomas

I'm a search engine optimizer and a project manager with over 3 years of experience. I hold a BSc in Management from The University of Nottingham and a Master in Digital Media from the University of British Columbia.

2013

I first entered the digital media industry as a front-end developer which allowed me to develop key technical skills in web programming. I've developed web applications using HTML5, CSS3, ReactJS / Redux and jQuery.

2014 - 2016

I learned about search engine marketing (SEO & SEA) first as a freelance web consultant and then as an SEO Consultant at altima, a global agency specialised in e-commerce. I had the chance to pitch to a variety of different clients and work with multidisciplinary teams (Front-End/Back-End developers, UX designers, art directors, CROs...).

During my time at altima, I had the chance to manage different e-commerce projects, such as the design and development of in-store mobile applications and e-commerce platforms, for well established brands in the luxury industry and the travel sector.

2016 - 2017

The Master of Digital Media program has helped me improve my collaborative skills and leadership abilities. I've had the chance to facilitate a number of different workshops both for my teams and for clients and I've worked as a scrum master on a number of different projects. This program has pushed me outside of my comfort zone and has made me think of better ways to work collaboratively.
