His keyword research, competitive intelligence, strategy, and optimization efforts deliver superior results for Intuitive Websites’ clients.

Timothy, a self-taught SEO specialist, and web developer, was a precocious prodigy when it came to technology and the early days of the web. An early adopter, and as early as 1995, a fifteen-year-old Timothy turned his obsession and love of the Beatles into a very successful and popular interactive and multimedia website–beatlesonline.com. It was so popular, in fact, that the local newspaper editor offered a teenage Timothy a job. In addition, that same website was referenced by CNN in a feature on the Beatles. Timothy carries this passion and fascination with everything web-related to his SEO role at Intuitive Websites.

When Timothy’s not helping Intuitive Websites’ clients slay the competition and converting visitors into buyers, he’s banging the skins as a drummer in a punk rock band, listening to and collecting music, consuming sci-fi and physics books, and geeking out on Star Trek.
