About Me

Hello! I am a professional digital marketer who cut his teeth in the startup space, honing in on video and conversational marketing channels like Facebook, YouTube, and Messenger.

I'm big on data-informed creativity. Balancing the numbers with innovative thinking and creative impulse is how I get things done, like:

  • Implementing a full-on video marketing strategy at greenRush and coordinating 20+ videos per month

  • Developing a Facebook Messenger Bot Marketing program for Enchant Christmas, amassing 30k+ subscribers in under 3 months

  • Creating and executing a comprehensive marketing rollout for Delta Kappa Epsilon's new networking service

  • Starting my own freelance photo and video business


My skills are built on a foundation of storytelling, digital strategy, and videography.
