About & My experience
I’ve been developing websites for more than 15 years: I started building websites as a teenager. First, to build a Harry Potter fan site complete with online Hogwarts and classes… the whole lot. The website grew and built up a small community which meant learning more and more skills to develop it.
Along the way, I started to build websites for friends, family and more. That is, until I found myself reselling hosted websites & templates for fan sites. This all stopped after I learned, the hard way, that you need backup. Backup plans & money in case of disaster with your hosting provider. Especially when you live in a remote location (French Polynesia) with sub-standard internet connection.
I am self-taught & my experience comes from problem solving for a huge variety of projects. Whether it’s marketing, branding, social digital media or web design projects, I’m always testing. New software, tools, solutions and methods. I use a variey of tools including Photoshop, WordPress, HTML, CSS, SEO …
In my career I have worked in sales, marketing, account and channel management. I have worked in both B2B & B2C, within SMBs, start-up, and corporate, education, public and volunteer environments. I love business: creating opportunities and partnerships. Learning how to provide the best value in what we do for a living.
I have always been enterprising: at 11, I started a small (and really silly) newspaper. I designed it, hired friends, enrolled the help of local businesses and family to distribute it or make copies. I won’t list all the other things I came up with then… let’s say I never rested.
At University I started a small graphics design business (protecting your work was my key learning there). While studying for an MA in Medieval History at King’s College London, I entered a business competition. My team won the Big Idea prize for a social enterprise food business idea. I’ve kept on testing. I’ve kept on looking for the right thing to pour myself into. Something to use my passions & skills. I have enjoyed every step – failures & successes alike.
Now, I run this consultancy as well as my own maker business MYTHYN.com where I can see no end of opportunity for growth. I love offering my wealth of experience and wide skills range to other small business owners. I have developed real knowledge of a variety of fields, and I have honed the ability to connect the dots and create opportunities. I know I can help you on your way and would love to work with you.
If you are looking for someone with a true passion for business and creativity. Someone who knows what it means to run their own business and make it all happen, I am it.
