About Perry Bernard

Founder of several businesses since 1990. Educated in Linguistics and Teaching. Conducted seminars throughout NZ for Kodak New Zealand over a 8 year period. Self-taught SEO specialist in organic SEO, Google Adwords, Google Display Advertising, Google Analytics, Google Webmaster Tools. Google Analytics Academy and GAIQ Certified.

I am in immigrant to New Zealand but have resided here since 1971 and consider myself to be a “new Zealander” but not necessarily a “Kiwi” due to my European roots. I am however very proud to be part of this country and would support it in every way if given the opportunity.

After gaining my secondary school education in Tokoroa, I initially attended the University of Waikato studying a BSc but did not complete this course, opting instead to gain hands-on experience in retail business. Within 3 years I had progressed from retail staff to business owner.

In 2003 I attended the University of Auckland for 5 consecutive years and attained a BA, BAHons (linguistics) and started (but did not complete) a Masters degree in Morphology. During my undergraduate studies I also learned Russian and gained some familiarity with Spanish.

I have an avid interest in all things relating to language and am continuing an informal study of Morphology and Phonology.
