I am a digital marketer, web developer, and business consultant with more than 25 years of experience building websites and driving traffic to them. I built my first website in 1995 and started developing websites for clients in 1996. Almost immediately we saw a need for someone to help drive clients and customers to those websites, and with Google still 2 or 3 years from even being founded, my first entry into the digital marketing world began.

Since then my professional life has taken many detours, but all of those have involved marketing on some level. You can learn more about me and what I do here on my personal website, or you can join me on any of the websites, podcasts, and businesses listed below.
