About

I’m a digital marketer, investor, and programmer living in Northern California.

As a consultant, I specialize in providing full-funnel acquisition strategies for companies seeking a material impact from online marketing investments.

As an entrepreneur, I architect web-based platforms that epitomize scalable, high-growth content production & demand generation models.

My core work often consists of build processing and optimization for large, architecturally complex websites and automated scaling processes related to content delivery and white hat link acquisition.

Outside of sitting in front of computers all day, I’m a frequent thrower of frisbees to my English Setter, find my zen with trail runs, and am a pretty gnarly standup paddleboarder.

This website is simple by design & noncomprehensive to my professional portfolio. I’d encourage you to find me on LinkedIn to contact me or get a better understanding of my experience.

education dynamics

Education enrollment company specializing in student prospecting across numerous channels. I facilitated a ground-up modification in organic strategy across an index of high-volume properties that had been mismanaged, penalized, or were otherwise simply dated & legacy in terms of their technology. Of distinctive interest was the rebuild of eLearners.com into Drupal, which was one of the most profitable online enrollment properties at the time.
