Who Are We?
Squibb Vicious Media are better known as Haydy & Mike. They’re a couple in their late twenties, early thirties who live together in Essex in their super cute flat.
What’s with the Name?!
Squibb Vicious was a name given to Haydy by an old work friend, and it stuck! For those of you that don’t quite get it; Squibb is her surname, and it’s a play on Sid Vicious from the Sex Pistols! Mike came on board once the Squibb Vicious boat had already sailed so the name just kind of stuck.
Why Start a Business?
Haydy has been running her blog since April 2012 as she has a love for anything creative. This blog then took her career onto a path she hadn’t really considered, SEO & Outreach, which she thoroughly enjoys. Mike then came onto the scene and has a real talent for photography and creating great videos so they make a pretty good team when it comes to digital media. They both long to work for themselves and so Squibb Vicious Media was born.
Any Background Knowledge?
Haydy has a BA Hons Degree in Media Writing from the University of Greenwich and has been featured in many online and print publications. She has 7 years experience with Social Media, Copy Writing, SEO & Outreach and has taken part in many photography courses. Mike is self-taught, but he has the patience of a Saint to get things done perfectly and can often be found reading or watching tutorials to better himself.
What do you do other than this?
Mike is a full-time Financial Analysist for a well-known global company and Haydy is the SEO Manager for Culture Trip. If they’re not at work, they can usually be found out with a camera and their drone, Malcolm or eating in new restaurants.
