2008 I incorporated my first company, RiDom Ltd; and offered the full web design service as a part time business - in addition to a full time job. I taught myself SEO and Google AdWords, and pursued a deeper understanding of web analytics and learnt Google Analytics. In the next 5 years RiDom had serviced around 30 clients. This was a busy and exciting time, meeting lots of people and being involved in lots of different projects.
2013 I was offered a fantastic role working as a Web Developer for Virgin Wines; a thriving Virgin Group company.
After 3 years I was promoted to Lead Front End Developer and led the front end team through the build of the new website; a 2 year project which was part of an entire IT restructure across the whole business.
2016 I was incredibly grateful to win Employee of the Year; with the reward being dinner and an evening with Richard and Holly Branson. I can't speak highly enough for Virgin Wines, it's a great company to work for; there are some fantastic people there who believe in the Virgin way of working, they work very hard - but play harder I'd say! Also, RiDom Ltd undertook a re-brand resulting in the incorporation of Top Pixel Ltd.
2017 I stepped down from my role at Virgin Wines - this was so I could resume my responsibilities in building Top Pixel into a top class digital web agency. I still maintain strong ties with Virgin Wines and help the team whenever they need an extra hand.
