If you had have asked me 3 years ago would I be running my own business, I’d have probably laughed at you! But here we are.

It’s pretty much an accident that I ended up working in this field. After I was made redundant from Next back in 2010, I returned to education at the ripe old age of 30. I completed a FETAC Level 5 in Business and Computers followed by a Level 6 in Business Studies. In the summer of 2012, I answered an ad in the local paper looking for a digital marketing intern in local tech startup Scurri. I got the job and started on a new path.

After a few years, my time in Scurri ended. At this stage, I knew I wanted to work in the industry but I also kind of fancied being my own boss.I knew what I had to do and I set myself a timeline. I started and finished my degree in Digital Design and Technology (with flying colours!).

In 2017, I set the wheels in motion to start my own business. It took me a while to think of a name. I wanted something that meant something to me, that I was connected to. I had an epiphany while out walking my dog and the name Rua Digital Media popped into my head. (Thankfully, I wasn’t walking Lily Pancakes that day…)

What is Rua Digital Media?

Rua does a lot of things:
  • social media management
  • web design
  • digital marketing
  • branding
  • and anything else I decide to turn my hand to!
Right now, Rua is just me but I hope to expand over the coming years. Just call me ‘the next Mark Zuckerberg’!
