My name is Mark Jackson and I go by the guise of MJDIGITAL. I am an award winning digital consultant to agencies and private clients for online marketing strategy, search engine optimisation and general online development. With a background in IT and system design & build (particularly eHome systems) I moved further into online development where in 2003 I became Head of Digital Media for a Surrey (UK) based design and marketing agency. Since 2003 I have worked on projects for companies such as AMD, Sun Microsystems, GE Capital, Esso, Tefal, Krups, Rowenta, Channel 4, BAE Systems, CHEP, Schoeller/Movenpick, UGS, Alterian, WebEx, UL International, Daikin, Syngenta, Last Minute.com, Vodafone, Vanguard UK, London Business School and many more. I now specialise in online marketing strategy and the delivery of required assets. I have my own extensive client list and consult regularly for various design, marketing and digital agencies. Although my main role is online marketing and development I did my formal training in music. I studied Contemporary Music Production at the Academy of Contemporary Music (ACM), graduated with full distinctions and won “Most Outstanding Student of the Year” (2001) – not blowing my own trumpet too loud I hope! I play guitar, keyboards, bass, drums and sing a bit (if pushed!) plus I am a competent music programmer and sound engineer. I still manage to do a little music when writing and recording soundscapes for B2B or B2C video promos, Chrsitmas eCards and online ads.
In terms of technical ability you can refer to the following (although it gets quite boring so you can move on now if you need!).
