Zoe also loves that marketing strategy and technology is always changing, meaning she’s never bored or without something new to learn.
When she’s not behind a keyboard, she’s on the keys – Zoe is a long-time pianist and overall music lover. She isn’t picky when it comes to genre and will talk music with anyone – just don’t badmouth Green Day.

She comes to us with an extensive design background across various mediums such as print, digital, social media and web.
She discovered her passion for drawing and art at a young age, and it was only natural that she enrolled in a local art class, which led her to study for a Diploma in Design and, finally, a Graphic Design Course.
Her ethics focus on clean styles and engaging designs. She works mindfully towards innovation and excellence in projects for all her clients.
In her spare time, she finds that perfect balance of keeping active and indulging in lots of chocolate (after her daughters have gone to bed, so she doesn’t have to share with them).

Indah Da Silva
Indah Da Silva
Indah has worn many hats in her marketing career, but her current (and favourite) is Copywriter. With a childhood passion for writing, Indah went to Uni thinking she would pursue journalism, before realising that marketing and copywriting better fit her creative and strategic flair.
Since then, she’s worked her copy magic for brands across insurance, beauty, technology, law, pet care – and everything in between. It’s no surprise she’s a multi-tasker who can often be found jumping between different styles, tones and projects all at once.
Forever a glass-half-full thinker, Indah is always looking to explore something new – whether that’s the latest in B2B marketing or a newly discovered hiking trail (the tougher the better).
A lifelong creative and lover of words and language, it’s hard to believe Katie hasn’t always been a copywriter. In fact, she started her career in the Digital Customer Service space – which is where she first stuck her toe into the copywriting pool and quickly found her love (and talent) for it.
Since then, Katie has written for a wide range of businesses and industries, including health and fitness, luxury fashion, not-for-profits and many more. Her skills lie in looking at the big picture and breaking it down into relatable and digestible concepts. A mix of creativity and strategy, she couldn’t be a more perfect fit for B2B marketing (and align.me).
When she’s not writing, you can still find her creating – whether that’s through photography, gardening, dancing, or brewing the perfect cup of tea.
Google Ad Specialist
Teshan, much like the rest of us, was on the receiving end of targeted ads and wanted to learn more. Infinitely curious and a keen self-learner, a simple Google search for this IT specialist completely turned his career upside down; Teshan developed a passion for Digital Marketing and has not looked back.
His strengths lie in analytics, and he’s always keen to delve into different industries and isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty.
In his downtime, Teshan can be heard singing and riffing on his guitar (he’s being humble when he says he’s ‘semi-professional’). If he’s not analysing or serenading himself, you’ll probably find him glued to the latest Real Madrid match.
Meet Johnny, our WordPress wizz and web dev pro. A software engineer in a former life, Johnny has since found his calling in web development. For seven years he spent his time working with clients across the globe in his own business, before joining align.me in 2018.
As someone that lives and breathes web development, Johnny specialises in creating websites that hit all the right notes: responsive design, conversion funnels, website speed and performance, every Google optimisation under the sun and more.
Never satisfied with ‘good enough’, Johnny is constantly learning new trends, tools, and tech to give him more of an edge.
When Johnny isn’t behind the computer screen, you’ll find him playing video games, shooting hoops or creating art (a curious choice, considering Johnny is colourblind).
Web developer Jaro (pronounced Ha-ro) has spent a decade picking up some pretty special (and high demand!) programming skills. Being mostly self-taught, Jaro has a unique approach to web dev that allows him to find innovative solutions to any problem he comes across.
When he’s not coding for align.me, you can find Jaro grinding hard on his start-up, an app that manages paid parking for establishments in the Philippines. Outside of his professional pursuits he still manages to find the time to play music and travel with his family in search of new beaches to relax on.
AJ (as he’s fondly known) in align.me’s Senior Developer, and the genius behind Funnel Plan software. He’s been working as a Software Developer for eight years, after discovering an interest in programming in high school and going on to study computer science.

A travel fanatic, AJ loves adventure of any kind – as long as it allows him to experience a new way of life and embrace his creative side through travel photography.
Arguably the most important person on the team, Anj is the person who keeps align.me running smoothly. As the Executive Assistant, she has her fingers in a lot of pies, keeping everything on track and organised, and always offering a helping hand when needed.
After over 10 years working as a Team and Operations Manager, Anj decided she wanted to find a role that would allow her to spend more time with her family. Her strong attention to detail, amazing organisation skills, and her love for helping people have helped her fit perfectly into the EA role and the align.me team.
A big fan of sports and staying active, Anj also has a great passion for interior design – unsurprising for someone with such an eye for detail!
It’s no easy task to manage and organise the day of an agency director, so we’re especially glad to have Marianne on our team. As the Executive Assistant to Brett, Marianne’s flexibility and organisational skills have ensured that no meeting has ever been missed.
Marianne has a degree in electronic engineering but found her calling in administration, due to her love of helping people and going the extra mile. Her experiences as a mother have also come in handy when it comes to multi-tasking, and it’s thanks to Marianne that the align.me team can enjoy smooth sailing on any day of the week.
When it’s time to clock off, Marianne is passionate about discovering new places and going on new adventures with her family. We’re sure that her love of reading goes hand-in-hand with exploring the world and experiencing new things!
