I am a forward thinker, problem solver and I am in-tune to the big picture. I tackle every project with gusto and ease, striving for each new project to be an improvement on the last.

I am always seeking out and learning new technologies to better enhance the user experience. My background is diverse, unorthodox and all over the map. I consider myself lucky and fortunate to have had the opportunities that I have, to grow and learn, to fail and excel in the business world.I have done it all from marketing Chicago’s Hotdog to putting out fires at the last Ad Agency that kept me employed. I have extensive guerrilla marketing experience running street marketing teams for bands for 10+ years. I worked at a online advertising “Dot Com” in the late 90’s . I can take apart PC’s & Mac’s and put them back together again.
