The company was founded 20 years ago but it has expanded rapidly in recent years having found the ideal delivery vehicle in Youtube.

I live in Milford-On-Sea in Hampshire. When I'm not working I like to spend time with my family, walk my dog and read. I'm the founder of Lens Digital and I believe in simple, elegant websites that are fun and engaging to use.
Managing Director of Lens Digital Limited. This new start up is about excellent content for niche websites and increasing the amplification of our members through intelligent use of social media. I have extensive business experience stretching over the last 20 plus years, much of it in online enterprises.
