DMT’s expansion never ceases to amaze even us! Now that we’ve taken on board a whole host of newbies, it’s time to get to know them. We sat down with Mike, our Junior Web Developer, to chat all things creativity, plus a sneaky bit of inside info on his fave teen vampire show (but shush, keep it to yourself 🤫).
The Work Stuff 📈
Tell us about your background. What led you to this career/industry?
I completed my A-Levels back in 2018 and have spent the time since focusing on a potential music career and doing freelance web design. Since Covid came along I’ve switched my focus to my creative career, which led me to the digital marketing industry as I feel my current skills transfer perfectly and getting the job experience will help develop my understanding of the industry I hope to thrive in.
What is something unique that you think you bring to the role?
It’s hard to pinpoint unique qualities in the creative industry as everyone brings their own experience to the table, but I hope that bringing my unique perspective will add to the work I do with DMT.
What’s something you want your colleagues to know about you?
Chinese food is and always will be the way to my heart.
The Personal Stuff 👩💻
What three words would your friends use to describe you?
Creative, Loyal, Grafter.
What’s your hobby or passion project outside of work?
I love music and I have been a drummer for bands in the past, playing venues like the Ritz, Gorilla and even Isle of White festival in 2019! Although my gigging days are behind me, I still love the hobby, and I will always be ready to pick up the sticks.
What’s your guilty pleasure?
The Vampire Diaries but you can’t tell ANYONE.
The Fun Stuff 🥂

Roger Taylor, John Taylor, Liam Gallagher, Lars P. Krause and Freddie Mercury, because they’re all legends.
