This site is about my experiences, triumphs, and challenges of being in the Search Engine Optimization (SEO) industry. Since this is my personal website, I want to try to have fun with you too. I’ll try to post interesting thoughts, especially related to SEO and Social Media. I live and breathe my job, which is a bit of an addiction, but the good kind.
You might also get bits of my life in New York City and as I travel to Europe and other places.
Who is John Doherty?
I am a marketing consultant with Distilled in New York City, where I also serve as the Director. I also help run Destinee Media, which is based in Huemoz, Switzerland, the home of Swiss L’Abri, the community founded by Dr. Francis Schaeffer. I lived there for 2 years, spread out over a 5 year period.
My education comes from James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA. I took at B.A. in Technical and Scientific Communication (TSC), with a concentration in Online Publications (read: web development) in December 2007. Since then I have worked as an Implementation and Support Manager at a software company in Herndon, VA followed by a year-long stint as the Managing Director of Destinée Media.
I am also a photographer. You can check out my photography website, John Doherty Photography. Feedback on my photos is always appreciated!
In my free time I work on writing projects and explore New York City. I also rock climb and ski when I have the chance and am near some mountains. My camera is frequently by my side. Recently I have been riding my single gear bicycle around Brooklyn, where I am lucky to call home. Find my photos on Instagram
