Objective & About

Hello, my name is Paul Doran. I am looking for jobs that will allow me to hone and employ my skills in web design, graphic design, and related marketing-based fields.

I have always had a passion for computers. Over the years, I’ve used my experience in web design, graphic design, analytics, SEO, video editing, email marketing, social media, etc. for various companies and clients including Texas Tech University, professional UFC fighter Jessica Eye, Rep 1 Sports, Colonial Companies, All Star Home Group Realty, ResuMakers.com, Highlands Natural Resources, Alfson Energy, DJ Nasha, Glow Station, Just Media Studios, and many other small projects.

Some more recent accomplishments include launching a new website for HST Pathways (coinciding with designing a major industry tradeshow booth), leading to a doubling of web traffic, a halving of bounces off the website and a 60% increase in organic search traffic. Also led SEO growth and increased 50+ key industry terms in Google search rankings by a combined nearly 500 positions, averaging around an entire page increase for every term.

I have also been involved in several startups over the years, most recently heading Product Design and Marketing at SocialCrowd, which recently closed its first round of funding at $500k. I also like to keep up to date with the latest industry changes, and have been diving into AI and seeing how tech like ChatGPT can be utilized to benefit marketing organizations.

On a personal note, I enjoy tennis and played on varsity & junior varsity teams back in high school. Music is also a passion of mine, and I have played and taken classes for guitar, piano, and violin. Other interests include photography, travel, space, and science.
