About me
In 1989 I co-founded my first internet company. It was too early. It failed. I became involved in internet awards in 1997 and in 2000, I founded Favourite Website Awards, now known purely as FWA. FWA has since grown to be one of the most respected digital awards on the web and has served well over 240 million visitors. I have three best-selling books under my belt, Guidelines for Online Success; The Internet Case Study Book, and The App & Mobile Case Study Book.
