My personal mission is to change the world, starting locally by influencing economic development and encouraging self-awareness and education, while leading by example. I'm an Internet guy. Ever since Al Gore paved the way for the 'super-highway', I've been a fan. The perfect blend of technology and information made way for a smarter, faster, more connected world.
In the early 90's I founded Biznet as an Internet Service Provider (ISP). As that space consolidated and commoditized, I found my next fancy. I built my first websites in 1994. Later I taught myself how to program using early web technologies like Netscape's Livewire, and the common gateway interface (CGI). I built a crude ERP and early web-based Document Management System.
E-commerce was just in its infancy and so much fun to build. I helped several businesses with their first foray into online business. Today, we shop online frequently, making billions of transactions each month.
By 2001, I was fascinated by online marketing. I learned everything I could about the early search engines and the new player, Google. Social Media lit up the landscape in 2008, providing a new 'channel' for reaching everyone - friends, acquaintances, and prospects. This was the beginning of the Content Marketing boom and the maturation of the search industry. Next came custom mobile apps for iOS and Android. I started DocApps, a short-lived startup focused in the healthcare space.
Today, I'm passionate about Marketing Automation technologies and enjoy working with companies from start-up to enterprise by providing the knowledge and talent necessary to design, build and manage a technology and data driven marketing process that optimizes their marketing efforts to a finely tuned science. Companies who are using Marketing Automation are seeing tremendous growth and a proven return from their marketing investments.
