I wake up every morning looking to bring a creative spark and efficiency to the day.  Whether it’s making breakfast, putting my hair in a man-bun, developing a social media strategy or maximizing a pay-per-click plan, there are always opportunities to improve.  My dad always said, “If you aren’t making things better, you are making them worse,” and I firmly believe that.

Throughout my career, the whirlwind digital marketing industry has brought my talents to a record label, a music store chain, B2B manufacturing, and now Blue Door Consulting.  I adore the digital marketing realm – it’s equal parts technology, creativity and detective work -  and I thoroughly enjoy each day spent surrounded by so many fantastically talented professionals.

Outside of work, I am an active musician in the area playing guitar, keys, trombone and giving my best take on blue-eyed soul on vocals. I’ve been fortunate enough to share the stage with Cheap Trick, Ben Folds, Third Eye Blind and the Gambler himself, Kenny Rogers.  I reside in Appleton with my beautiful wife, children, dogs and a killer collection of Batman comics.
