I’ve worked in digital for more than a decade, and spent over half that time using Google Analytics and SEO data to improve websites.

I turn numbers and graphs into plain English. My additional experience in content, UX, information architecture and lab-based research allows me to provide actionable insights. 

I’m a big advocate for the idea that it’s not user stupidity, but design failure that causes many users to get frustrated with websites. Good design is driven by data, and I’m passionate about making websites measurably better.

Everyone can use analytics – I’ve trained people with all kinds of digital backgrounds how to understand data and get results in the UK, NZ and Holland.

I also speak at events and blog, usually about how to shape content and design around user needs in order to make successful and usable websites.
