Biography

I'm NOT going to tell you I'm an expert... but what I will tell you is I’m thrilled you’re here, because we’re very similar.

I started my career jumping into the Internet boom in 1999. I had a great passion for technology and marketing, so I started a digital agency. It was just me for a while and then I started getting more clients and decided I need to hire my first employee. What a big and scary event. Luckily it worked out and I hired many more to grow the agency to a multimillion dollar company.

I had some of the best clients in the World from Aflac, Lotus Cars, Hitachi, AT&T, Coke and Legal Zoom but it was not easy getting to that level. I had to learn quickly while walking on fire and not stepping on the client land mines.

In 2011, I was lucky enough to have my agency acquired and then just 7 months later got acquired again by a public company. What a ride!

After taking a brief vacation, I dreamed up an innovative way of changing your bad eating habits, by taking pictures of everything you eat and sharing them with your friends, through an iPhone app called Goalvator. I also joined on with Payscape as their Chief Innovation Officer, where I am responsible for managing the technology, innovation, marketing, and product direction of multiple brands, innovation process, and creative & development teams.

Over the past decade, I have operated outside the box and always challenged the status quo. I have done almost everything a small business needs from marketing, creative, operations, project management, sales, technology, clean the bathrooms and much more.
