    About Me

    That annoying kid at the front of the classroom who was always asking why… 

    I was never that guy. I preferred to attend a class for the first week or two, read the entire text-book, and never go to lectures again. It’s not that I’m a rebel, I’m just passionately curious. That’s why I’m looking for a company with a solid foundation and some gaps to fill. I have great experience, lots of energy, and a bit of that “vision thing”. If your company is in need of an asset, I’m your guy.

    High-Level Summary


    Digital Marketing

    I have worked in all areas of Digital Marketing. Although I haven’t worked with every platform, I’ve worked with most.


    Business Operations

    Your company can always be pushed in terms of growth and efficiency. I find efficiency gaps then implement fixes that make everyone’s lives easier



    I enjoy creating environments in which all players win. My management style is a mix of empathy, clearly defined expectations, and unambiguous penalties.



    I am a “Full Stack Developer” of digital marketing. I have a solid understanding of everything from network security and web server configuration to all levels of the sales funnel and ad platform management.
