Marketing Through Storytelling

About

Enough with the noise and the jargon and the fluff. Stop being so damn witty.

What do you want your viewers or visitors to remember?

For the past 17 years, I have been a digital visual marketer who has been able to cut through the clutter and focus on the key message, that one little hook, that forces a viewer to not only pay attention, but to act.

I have helped companies of all sizes across many different industries succeed. This wide swath of experience allows mr to bring fresh ideas to each new environment. B2B? Got it. B2C? Done it. Print? No problem. Digital? Even better.

A lifelong creator, I know that effectiveness trumps everything. You want to make pretty pictures? Go be a broke artist. Digital marketing is about results.

These days I run the digital marketing group at networking infrastructure powerhouse Extreme Networks. In addition to the in-house creative team that I built, I also oversee growth of the website, social media, and advertising.

The intersection of strategy and creativity.
