Joining Distilled as an SEO, Tom comes from a background in freelance web development. With 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 him 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’. His favourite things about SEO are constantly learning new things and meeting with clients to form strategy (and seeing the happy look on their faces when they’ve seen it working!).
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. He is an almost reformed Christmas dinner addict, and now manages with only 2-3 roast turkey dinners a year. Just an SEO test here… on my website.
