He’s an author, experienced Marketer, Strategist, and Technical SEO. What is rare and special is that, unlike lots of tech geniuses, who prefer to ferret their extensive knowledge away in their own private vaults, Chris loves to share and teach everything he knows to anyone who will listen. Those who do are well rewarded. 

He has spoken at industry events such as BrightonSEO, State of Digital, Search Norwich, Search LDN, and Optimisey and worked with household names, SMEs and one man bands. Chris is a certified trainer for SISTRIX, an Ambassador for OnCrawl, and a contributor for State of Digital.

At work, he is motivated by making progress and improvement. Rome wasn’t built in a day, but laying new bricks is exciting. At the weekend, his favourite thing to do is make pancakes for his girls. Nothing says Saturday morning like American pancakes and syrup!

If he could trade places with anyone for a day it would be Victor J. Glover, Jr. Chris says – ‘he’s an astronaut on the ISS at the moment. I’ve never wanted to be an astronaut BUT I would like (for a day) to experience what it is like looking at the world from space’.
