My Story

/(Abridged)

Born and raised in Florida, I began programming shortly after my seventh birthday. I was fortunate enough to be one of the first 250 students accepted to the Center for Advanced Technologies for programming and mathematics, which ranks #15 on Newsweek’s Best High Schools list. I then went on to study Political Science at the University of Central Florida.

Most importantly, I am a proud father of a precocious five year-old girl whose life experiences I’ve been photo blogging since the beginning.

I am fully proficient in JavaScript, jQuery, PHP, HTML5, CSS3, Google Analytics, AdWords, Data Studio, Tag Manager, WebTrends, SalesForce, SAP, HubSpot, Adobe Marketing Suite, PhotoShop and more. Also, kale sucks– that’s a fact.

My Specialties

Business Intelligence

A little bit of knowledge may be a dangerous thing, but a whole lot of knowledge can’t be beat. I specialize in deep analytics deployments for complex and dynamic digital platforms along with robust manual analysis and automated reporting.

Advanced Ad Targeting

If you’re looking to run a simple AdWords campaign, I’m probably not your guy. But if you require feature-rich advertising integrations with automated audience building or dynamic content ads, I’m definitely your guy.

Conversion Optimization

Producing the most successful marketing campaigns requires advanced tracking, content personalization, testing, analysis, refinement and the years of experience to know what works and what doesn’t.
