In 1999 while in school I attended a seminar about Information Technology sponsored by Sri Lanka Telecom (SLT) at the Royal Mall, Kandy along with my father who worked for SLT at the time. The seminar had a topic about how search engines work, which had my full attention and later inspired me.
I began my career in 2001 and worked for international entities including HSBC Global Resourcing Center, Standard Chartered Bank & Dialog Telekom. Same year I got through the first stage of Australian Computer Society (ACS).
Started to use Search Engines to full potential for work when I was working as an investigator (Money Laundering) at HSBC Global Resourcing Center.
Initially I started to experiment Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) with search engines Google, Yahoo & Bing in 2009 with my old website which I created mainly for this purpose (Still ranks on first page on Google). I achieved a percentile of 88% (Better than 88% of test takers) on SEO exams to become an oDesk Certified Search Engine Optimization Specialist.
Creating myself a job opportunity around SEO was a great challenge and I started as an SEO Executive on 19th of April 2010 at Elite Web Studio Ltd, and got promoted as SEO Specialist in January 2011.
As a Certified SEO Specialist and Lead SEO Strategist, I am currently working on SEO projects for clients from the UK, US, Australia, New Zealand & Sri Lanka.
