“You can’t fix
what you don’t measure.”

I’ve spent 37 years in marketing, graphic design, and digital strategy. In 2005, I transitioned from graphic design to internet marketing, a change that reflected both the evolving market trends and my own growth.

I developed a fascination with technology at age 12, with a second-hand Timex Sinclair 1000 as my guide. I taught myself to code, creating two simple cars that I could race around the TV screen by pressing the arrow buttons on the keyboard.

While in college, I studied Communication Arts at East Carolina University, where I also worked full-time as a lead designer at a commercial printer and took on freelance graphic design projects. So, at age 19, I was already working with local businesses to develop their brands and brand collateral.

Since that time, I’ve worked at many magazines and newspapers where I had opportunities to learn copy writing, copy editing, and photography as well as sharpen my design skills. My last graphic design position as the Graphic Design manager for a luxury resort employed all of these skills. Then, they gave me the opportunity to become the Website Manager and that’s where my career in internet marketing took off.

That was in 2005. Since then, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this job. It’s blend of creative, analytical, and technical is exactly what I need to feel fulfilled. I’ve created and developed a lot of websites, a lot of landing pages, a lot of email blasts, a lot of ads — I’ve created a lot of logos, a lot of photography and I’ve written copy for all of it.

In my free time, I delve into hobbies like kayaking, hiking, woodworking, photography, poetry, music and improv. (I’m pretty terrible at woodworking and improv.)
