Reece George

I‘m a Martu man, an Indigenous Australian, from the Pilbara region of North-Western Australia (WA).

Formally speaking, my title is Dr., Dr. (because I have two PhD’s). I’m the first Indigenous Australian to receive two PhD’s in two separate disciplines; one in Information Technology and the other in Marketing. I’m probably the first Indigenous Australian to be awarded a PhD in Marketing.

Here are some other things about me you need to know:

  • I lived in the WA Desert with my Grandmother for five years.
  • To draw, I use an Apple pencil on an iPad Pro.
  • I’ve been online since 1995, around the time the Internet was born. In 1998, I started building commercial websites and in 2003 I started specialising in Search Engine Marketing.
  • I’m a dreamer, a yogi and a dad.
  • I went from door-to-door for twenty-five years, talked about the Bible to roughly seventy thousand people and eventually came to the conclusion that God only exists in people’s imaginations.
  • I try to be fun but my girlfriend is the fun one.
  • My work ethos is to:
    • Give a shit
    • Be courageously honest
    • Find a way
    • Wear my chicken suit
    • Respect others
