My main role at present is working freelance as a business consultant, assisting online news publishers with maximising revenue from their content. My areas of expertise are DFP ad server, Adsense, AdX, Header Bidding, page layouts, spotting and incorporating new online trends and quickly dismissing failed ones.
Previous to this I started a publishing business with Gigwise.com (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gigwise), Entertainmentwise.com, and numerous other music and popular culture websites. At peak we were delivering over 40m pages a month.
For a creative outlet I like to splash paint on canvas in an orderly manner (simonperlaki.com), chip away at stone or wood, and bang on the drums! I used to DJ regularly, and still like to have a dabble on the decks if circumstances permit (mixcloud.com/perlaki).
