Who is this guy?

My passion is developing online marketing strategies that deliver real-world business results and create the emotional connection brands seek to convert fans into advocates.

Because of that, I ask "why?" a lot.  
Hint: The answer should never be "...because, that's how we've always done it." 

My experience comes from developing and executing fully integrated campaign strategies, rooted in consumer and data-driven insights, and delivering measurable results for Fortune 500 companies and small businesses alike.

I have worked with all size companies, but I specialize in growing companies in the $1MM-10MM revenue range.
