I'm part marketer, and part software architect with a penchant for building great teams. Above all I'm thoroughly infected with the entrepreneurial virus.
I'm currently an independent marketer focusing on generating high volume, high value lead generation via SEO as well as running two ecommerce businesses including Spruce CBD. Previously I was heading up the engineering team, content marketing team, and sales for a global boutique search marketing agency Ayima.
Lastly, I'm quite the baby whisperer (thanks Dr. Karp).

January 2009 - August 2016
I developed my first appetite for generating income from search engines right around the time Google was starting to make a name for itself in the valley. I remember seeing the billboards on the 101 south as I drove from San Francisco to my software development startup gig in Redwood City. Working from my Hayes Valley flat I began to make some significant income as an affiliate by optimizing for Alta Vista and Yahoo. In a matter of months that income became greater than my day job so I quit, moved to Raleigh, and setup an office. Since then I've built scores of web businesses. As is the case with all entrepreneur ventures most flop, but a few have been stellar.
