About Me

My Story

I have over 15+ years of digital marketing and e-commerce experience. For the past 8 years I have worked on a contract/consultant basis, helping dozens of businesses generate hundreds of thousands of dollars in revenue. Before that I co-founded a successful Internet DNS and domain name registration company where I was responsible for creating and executing the marketing and branding program in addition to the overall management of the company.

E-commerce and digital marketing are my passion and I bring extensive experience, an understanding of best practices, a strategic mindset, a collaborative spirit, excellent communications skills, attention to detail, and strong organizational skills to the role. I am a team player with a strong bent toward innovation through ongoing learning and development.

I have practical experience and a strong understanding of many digital marketing practices including integrated digital marketing, SEO, PPC and search marketing, email marketing, social media marketing, analytics and reporting, and media production.

John has revolutionized our use of the internet to grow our readership and change the way people think about literature. Almost overnight, John effectively morphed us from a small indie publisher into a major player in the world publishing market. Through our continued relationship we only see ourselves growing and expanding.
