With a background in freelance web development, a degree in Computer Science, a PhD in Artificial Intelligence (almost – he is still writing his thesis!) and having taught himself to program on a BBC Master compact at the age of 8, it could be easy to mistake Tom for a nerd. However, he knows you can have a healthy interest in HTTP headers, APIs, Google Spreadsheets and all that stuff and still be ‘cool’.
When not hacking together SEO tools, or writing about SEO on his blog, Tom enjoys being enthusiastic but not terribly good at photography, playing Poker, and martial arts. Although he rarely has time for any of those things nowadays - with two young daughters most of his time is spent planning the garden shed he expects to be moving into in a few years time.
