Gary Ireland Gary Ireland – Web Marketing Specialist

With experience in everything from graphic design, telemarketing, fine art, electronic sales, teenage counseling, and digital marketing, Gary finally settled on writing as his main weapon of choice. Copywriter by day, novelist by night, he has found he is exceptionally skilled at SEO, mainly because most people don’t understand what that is.

Gary hates talking about himself in the third person, but this seems to be the trend with work summaries. He’s a well-travelled man, and after a few pints might well tell people about managing to step foot on every continent before the age of thirty. Just as long as you don’t mention the fact Antarctica is also a continent.
