Will Barnes – Street Snapper Extraordinaire
Will Barnes recently joined the team as a junior SEO engineer, having previously been a junior web administrator for popular UK skate retailer Route One. Also having a first class degree in media and cultural studies from Canterbury Christ Church University and his own photography site, he's more than qualified for his new role here at Fresh Egg.
Before suffering an unfortunate injury that left him with a fractured ankle, Will used to skate (experience that was no doubt useful in his previous job), and also used to take part in competitive rock climbing. He has also been in a death metal band, a fact that is sure to trigger some lively discussion among the other musicians resident in our offices.
More active pursuits aside, Will is quite artistically inclined. As well as being a dedicated photographer, he also loves street fashion, graffiti – although insisting that he'd be no good at it himself – and abstract paintings, especially those by William Turner. Will is also a fan of minimalism, be it in design (anything from an Apple product to a simple kitchen appliance) or his everyday life: he tries to live a minimalist lifestyle, having sold most of his things a few years back.
When asked why he wanted to work with us, Will said: “I’ve been wanting to expand my interests in SEO and couldn’t think of a better place to do so.”
We hope we live up to your expectations, Will – welcome to the team!
