Meet The Team
Ambitious, talented, and passionate about providing clients with fresh, innovative marketing techniques and web design solutions.
James Richardson started his online career running online Sports Fan sites (luckily none are still online today), with the pinnacle being a write up in the Sunday Herald Sun 'Wired' column.
His professional career began at ASX listed company Melbourne IT where he held various senior roles across the Sales and Marketing teams, before deciding to venture out on his own.
Running several successful online websites and businesses himself, he is well placed at understanding what your business needs.
Daniel Zuccon made his first website in 1998 for a friend in exchange for a skateboard. (Don't worry, his programming skills are far better than his short-lived skating career!)
Since then, he has run several online businesses including boutique eCommerce stores and large online communities, so he understands the issues businesses face every day.
Mish brings a fresher perspective in social media marketing, copy writing and data analysis that helps companies build audiences, engage and amplify brand presence.
Having completed a Bachelor in Business Marketing Degree at Victoria University as well as attaining an Advanced Diploma in Advertising. Mish has wanted nothing more than to put his studies behind him.
Since Uni, he has began his career as an Account Manager at a Social Media Agency before deciding to come aboard the Optimising ship. Being a workhorse/larakin he is able to handle all types of online marketing strategies, whilst cracking a joke or two.
Nathan brings a wealth of experience to the Optimising team with a list of credentials too long to list here! He has a strong SEO/PPC background, both in-house and agency, and believes that SEO contributes to a business' bottom line in a meaningful way.
Nathan is an avid soccer, basketball and rugby fan, though he openly admits his on-field skills definitely don't match his business development skills. He claims that winning ‘Best Looking Salesman' was a proud moment in his life. We doubt this ever happened, but we're willing to let it slide.
Nathan is our 'go to' guy for business marketing and business development, so if you've got a question feel free to contact him here.

Samantha never thought of applying her extensive PR experience in online marketing after completing her journalism degree from Monash University in 2011, but since joining Optimising, her eyes have been opening to the immense possibilities and wide ranging benefits.
Samantha enjoys working with her wide range of clients because it means doing something different everyday and developing creative publicity campaigns.
Specialising in lifestyle and consumer in her days in PR, she's worked with a range of clients from Sesame Street to luxury hotels over the last few years.
During her degree she developed a serious travel bug and has now lived in five countries (from Malaysia to the Arctic Circle in Norway) but will only ever call Melbourne home.
Adding a further bow to her cap, her journalism credentials include 'The Sunday Herald Sun' and a variety of niche magazine publications.
Lachlan is an ex-sandgroper who traded the crystal blue waters of Cottesloe Beach for the dreary grey skies of Melbourne. Thankfully, his role as Digital Content Marketer at Optimising, as well as the opportunity to go out on a Monday night, is making it all worthwhile.
After completing a Marketing degree, he started his career in the print heavy world of recruitment advertising (a lot's changed since 2007!). As an Account Manager, his job was to become an expert in his client's businesses, which ranged from global gold mining companies to small independent schools.
In the last few years, he's levelled-up his nerd credentials and creative writing skills in AFA AWARD School. He couldn't care less about AFL, he's too busy worrying about content for his clients.
Anthony brings a wealth of knowledge and industry experience about building digital experiences to Optimising and comes from a background in advertising and the music industry.
Originally coming from the United States, he landed in Melbourne one day and never went back. He's been writing HTML since he was in high school and has experience working with all types of clients including Not For Profits, Government, and many more.
His interests include playing his bass guitar, going to gigs and festivals, and playing with new and interesting technology.
Steven is currently studying Commerce (Accounting & Finance) and brings this knowledge to his work within the Optimising Accounts & Finance Department.
In his spare time he enjoys extensive training at his local gym and tearing it up on the futsal court.
Dani has been a writer all her life. From inventing titillating stories at the age of 4 (there were lots of bunnies involved) to her Journalism degree, completed in 2010, she has a wealth of writing knowledge. Also qualified as a Media and English teacher, Dani enjoys a well crafted sentence and is a stickler for detail; rest assured there will be no red marks on your copy, only A+ work gets published here.
In her spare time Dani enjoys baking, eating her baked goods (she can't deny a good pie) and some long stitch on the side. She also hopes to write a children's book some day and create bigger and better long stitch designs. Despite her domestic sensibilities, she is very much a 21st century girl, not knowing how she would function without her Macbook and the Internet.
Jim tried to write his own biography in code, but was advised against it. He has a passion for all things web and technology – especially if it's open source. He has led large development projects for football clubs, insurance companies and more.
