What does SEO mean to you?
To me it means generating more business from your own web site, connecting you and your customers and getting your business found online organically.

Why does SEO appeal to you so much?
Search Engine Optimisation when done right enables the small guy to win and get a leg up on the large corporations.

I love SEO because it is always evolving and changing, which requires me to always stay in touch of not only where Google is going to but where they are likely to shift things as time goes on.

When you are not up to your elbows in keywords what do you do?
In my freetime I love to spend quality time with my children and our pet lorikeet. I love the beach, surfing, camping, fishing taking the bird for a walk.

I enjoy a pretty quiet life when I am not trying to help companies gain organic traffic or grow their business via search.

Three things that make you tick?
Campfires under the stars with my children, exploring my surroundings, accepting all that comes my way, and fighting for what I believe in. I love learning new skills, I’m an eternal life student so being in a professional working environment that encourages knowledge development is inspiring.

Favorite Food?
My favourite food is my mom’s home made cazuela con peure. Its typically a Chilean dish consisting of a thick stew of chicken, potatoes, rice, green/red peppers.

If you could host a dinner with any three people, who would you choose and why?
My top 3 people to invite to dinner: Anthony Robbins, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Robin Williams.

In short, Robbins is exciting and fun to listen to, Arnold is just awesome! and Robin Williams would be the life of the party.

If given the chance to skip work for a day, how would you spend the entire day?
I would spend the day just hanging out with my kids and my friends maybe go out for a meal.

At the end of the day after eating and laughing with freinds and family I feel completely refreshed and re-energised and ready for the next day’s work.
