The Obligatory ‘About Me’ Page
DaylanDoes.com is a place where I post various brain dumps, rants, experiments, experiences and posts of whatever seems like a good thing to write about.
A little about Daylan
If I were to pigeonhole myself, I guess I’d be a guy who lives in Melbourne, Australia (the best city in the world BTW) who spends many hours figuring out how to make cool digital experiences and spends far too much money on comic books. I fell into digital when I decided I wanted to learn how to make cartoons. This lead me to learning Flash which snowballed into web development and eventually marketing.
Throughout the past decade or so I’ve been able to build up skills in all sorts of nerdy, marketing areas including web development, content creation, email marketing, copywriting, social marketing and search marketing.
I’m currently the Digital Experience Manager at Next Digital – Australasia’s largest independent digital agency – in Melbourne, Australia, where I get to work with some of the most well known brands within the Asia Pacific region. My job is to identify ways of making the customer experience awesome. It involves a lot of data, a lot of research, but also a lot or creativity and imagination. Essentially, I get to make digital things cooler! It’s great fun.
Thanks for stopping by.
