About Rowan

Raised in Peterborough, I grew up like any kid with football and video games. When I moved to Canada in 2005, I started playing a game called StarCraft.

This game allowed for custom maps to be designed, using simple coding. This started me down a path of learning flash, html, css, java, and php at the age of 15. Then, I returned to the United Kingdom and took my path down Music Technology Specialism – graduating with 1:1 honours from University of West London.

I secured a job working in sales for one of the UK’s leading audio equipment retailers, where eventually I was moved over to the eCommerce department to apply my coding background in website design and SEO ranking. Shortly after is when I made the move to SUSO Digital, in 2016.
