I founded the My Local Electrician magazine and directory back in 2008, building my first ever website on Drupal 5. Since then I’ve created and project managed more websites on the Drupal CMS than I could ever have imagined and I'm also a Drupal developer.

What I love most about my work is the variety of people I meet, both face-to-face and virtually. Many of my clients have also become friends. 

Born in London, as a child I was pretty enthusiastic and active. This enthusiasm has never left me. I am currently based in Rainham, Kent.

Another major passion of mine is playing guitar and 50's and 60's music, you can see and hear me here.

I have over 20 years experience in the retail sector, having worked with companies such as Marks and Spencer, Monsoon Accessorize and most recently Loaf.

I have spent years in head offices in London with responsibility for sales and profit and I love getting to the root of what the customer wants and seeing tangible results.

I am a keen football fan and had a season ticket at a London club for years until very recently.  I also love singing and a good night out!  

I grew up in Rainham, Kent and am delighted to be joining Gary’s team at my local trades.

I know absolutely nothing about web development, SEO or online marketing.

I found my owner Gary when I was very little. This is a picture of me when I was 10 weeks old.  He had no choice but to keep me. I think he likes me now. 

I love retrieving, and I’m not afraid of the bigger dogs. I’m also a little crazy as I like to zoom around the office a couple of times a day. 

I enjoy jumping, eating, and sleeping but occasionally you can also find me eating shoe's and occasionally destroying them. My favourite food is Royal Canin Pediatric
