A little bit about me
Even as a child, much of my life was dedicated to technology. Often times my parents would come home from work only to find computer parts scattered across the floor or to see me staring intently at a flickering monitor programming in what looked like a foreign language (qBasic and HTML at the time).
Today I have a degree in Information and Networking Technology. I have IT experience in corporate culture via several fortune 500 companies. I’ve successfully founded and sold an e-commerce startup, parlaying that knowledge into a seven year stretch as an Internet Marketing consultant. I’ve had the pleasure of working as the Internet Strategist for two well respected ad agencies in Minneapolis, and now serve as the Digital Analytics Specialist for the historic Red Wing Shoe Company.
I have certifications in Google Analytics, Google Adwords, and Bing Ads. I’m a Google Certified Partner and my knowledge of all things digital is ever expanding. It’s safe to say that I’m still just as passionate about technology and the internet today as when I first started down this path many years ago.
Why I love what I do
The internet landscape is a ever challenging 24/7/365 environment that is constantly evolving. It’s not uncommon for the major search engines and social networks to update their algorithms hundreds of times per year. Because of this, it can become very difficult to maintain an understanding of what works, what doesn’t, and why.
This is why I love what I do. I love the challenge. I love the fast paced environment. I love making sense of the chaos.
