I have over 15 years experience in website design, online marketing, logo design, branding and consultancy in both Business to Business and Business to Consumer environments.
After graduating with a First Class Bachelor of Arts (Hons) degree in Photomedia from the University of Plymouth I returned to Guernsey in 1999 where I became the online media developer for Z-CARD®, an International marketing company. My role at Z-CARD® involved the redesign, production and deployment of the main zcard.com website as well as over 20 regional and language variations.
In 2004 I co-founded the e-commerce website RIP101.com which sold sports clothing, accessories and hardware. In addition to the design of the site, I also managed all digital marketing activities such as search engine optimisation, email marketing, pay per click advertising and affiliate marketing.
In 2011 I was offered a position at allbeauty.com, one of the largest online beauty retailers in Europe; where my responsibilities included:
- PPC: Management and development of all Google AdWords and BING paid search activity.
- Google Shopping: Creation and management of Google Shopping (PLA) activity in 5 countries.
- Remarketing: Creation and management of all static and dynamic remarketing activity.
- Affiliate Marketing: Managing a total of 4 Affiliate Programmes over 3 Networks.

- Facebook Paid Advertising: Creating & delivering Facebook ads to custom and lookalike audiences.
- Analytics: Using a variety of analytical packages and attribution models to scrutinise data.
In 2016 I became the Paid Search Manager at Healthspan, responsible for all PPC activity. Healthspan are the UK’s Number 1 Direct Supplier of Vitamins and Supplements with over 2 million customers.
Outside of work I enjoy keeping fit whether in the gym, running or spending time on the water. I am a keen surfer and have represented Guernsey at national level as well as competing for the University of Plymouth. I also enjoy snowboarding, wakeboarding and kitesurfing.

Matt from Web Design Guernsey was helpful, professional and very efficient. The website designed was totally to my requirements and within my budget – I would highly recommend!
Client Feedback: Katy Le Tissier, Mobile Beauty Therapist, Guernsey.
As a new company it was very important that the Green Acorn website presented a modern, efficient image which reflected the company. Working with Matt made this straight forward to achieve as he understood quickly what we wanted from the site and designed it so that we could easily update the content without needing technical knowledge or specialist skills. Additionally this was all done within the tight time and budget constraints we had. I look forward to working with Web Design Guernsey as our company develops and grows to incorporate new features and functionality.
