I was raised in a large family. I am #7 of 9 children. And yes, I was the smartest and cutest.
In college I DJ'd to help pay my way through school. Lots of weddings and class reunions, and the occasional private party.
I am a supporter of libraries as a valuable community asset and serve on the board of the Friends of the Seattle Public Library.
I am the father of two young adults stepping out into the world. My son is working for a start-up in Portland, and my daughter is "living the life" in NYC working for an upscale woman's fashion brand.
Notes about my expertise in inbound marketing:
Inbound marketing is closely tied into a successful sales process. I studied advertising in college, and my career in media and marketing has always been in some sort of sales role, so I have long recognized the importance of the two working together to be more effective.
Proof? I had my own personal computer at the office of my first sales job and bought myself a copy of ACT! to manage my contacts.
Media and advertising has evolved the last 25 years, and inbound marketing, through the growth of the internet and power of digital communications, has evolved into a valuable way to build business for companies, especially those involved in sophisticated products or services where intellectual capital is your key distinguisher for success.
