About the Founder

John Hillman

John Hillman began his SEO journey back in 2009 as Head of Content at the Award Winning search agency NMPi (Incubeta).

He has been a Digital Storytelling lecturer at City University and has helped to launch a thousand music careers as SEO lead at Universal Music’s Spinnup platform, which was launched in 10 different countries and lead to the discovery of dozens of multi-platinum artists.

John founded Astrid.IQ (formerly JHMA) to work with exciting brands in the technology, home and luxury spaces and to try and help play a part in supporting companies that offer innovative solutions to some of the biggest challenges we face.

A keen historian, he dedicates his spare time to running a much loved history podcast or getting smashed about in the cold, English sea.
