About Me


My Profile

👦 Who am I?

Hi there, I’m Dom. I'm a social media and digital specialist with over 3 years experience and a proven track record of delivering strategic, disruptive and impactful social media work.

Although social is my strength, I’ve got a fairly strong set of digital skills which has lead me to do some pretty awesome work.



Here's what I've been up to.

2014 / Jun - 2015 / May

Starcom MediaVest

Senior Account Executive

Responsible for the Yas Marina Circuit social media account. As the key point of contact, my responsibilities ranged from client management to handling the account's strategic and creative output. I developed and executed the social strategy behind the award-winning 2014 Formula 1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix social campaign – '#AbuDhabiGP'. Check out some highlights from the campaign here.

2012 / Jul - 2014 / Jun

Edelman UAE

Digital Content Specialist (AE) (1 year)
Junior Account Executive (1 year)

Played a primary role in key digital accounts such as Xbox Gulf, Yas Marina Circuit, BlackBerry and Qualcomm. Responsibilities included client management, content creation, community management, online monitoring and analytics using tools such as Sysomos/Google Analytics, paid media and programming. See the kinds of things I got up to at Edelman.

"We trended #1 globally on Twitter on race day. We generated 1.9 billion impressions and 250,000 twitter mentions. It was a really, really big race weekend for us, so I am really happy."
