My story

Developing, implementing, managing, and measuring digital marketing programs and digital marketing initiatives are what I do. I also help companies train their staff on best practices for marketing operations and projects.

Inbound marketing is the cornerstone of a solid integrated marketing strategy, and that's where I start to make a profound difference for companies. From content development, blog implementation, graphics direction, keyword research, and web design and development, we'll ensure that home base, your company's website, is primed for success. After building a solid foundation, I then help businesses to develop and track other digital marketing efforts including marketing automation, search engine optimization (SEO), pay-per-click, display advertising

Some of the industries I've served include: healthcare, SaaS, manufacturing, technology, retail, professional services, industrial, legal, financial, non-profit, health and chiropractic, nutrition, publishing, the arts, and education.

I received my MBA from Capella University and hold a BA from the College of Visual Art of the University of Chicago. I'm a Hubspot Certified Inbound Marketing Professional and I am Google Analytics Qualified. Furthermore, I have completed training in Project Management and Lean Six Sigma Green Belt.

I am a percussionist and certified drum circle facilitator. I have been married to my wife of fifteen years, Lisa, who is a music teacher and performer. We have three children, a chihuahua, and a giant day gecko.

As a Wood Badger, I also serve as the Assistant Cubmaster, Den Leader, and Committee Member of Cub Scout Pack and Boy Scout Troop 358. Furthermore, I have served on the marketing committee for several non-profit organizations including chambers of commerce and arts and professional organizations.
