Previous Ventures

Aldred Applications

Interested in the process of developing iPhone applications, I taught myself the basic skills and then developed a series of iPhone applications. Requiring creativity to think of marketable ideas and problem solving in order to solve any technical errors, I have now released several apps for sale in the Apple App Store. Mainly educational, they have helped many students, receiving thousands of downloads.

Institute of Opinion

Co-founded a political blog where young people were able to share their views on political and economic issues. Managed a team of over 30 contributors and delegated roles to editors, while also writing content myself. During the time period which the website has running we revamped the website with brand new designs and worked with think-tanks and other organisations to increase the size of our audience. One of my articles was featured by a well known website, leading to over 3,000 views in 24 hours.

London Medway Airport www.londonmedwayairport.com

As an extension of Institute of Opinion, co-created brief plans and outlines for a major new international hub airport for the UK to solve the aviation capacity problem. The project attracted attention from local groups and individuals in the Kent area. Working together, we collected evidence and produced reports which were submitted to the Transportation Select Committee and the Independent Airports Commission. Following the Interim Report, LMA was considered credible and taken forward as part of the Inner Thames Estuary consultation.

Bitesize Promotion

Established my own business, a freelance iPhone and iPad application marketing agency – working directly with developers, providing consulting and marketing services, designed to helping to increase app sales. Developing relationships with clients from all around the world, I put clients first, managing to develop a good reputation. Having to meet tight deadlines means that good organisation was required. A key part of my work was to liaise with others on certain tasks in order to complete the work. Clients often returned for repeat business and recommended me to others, leading to a lucrative business.
