SEM | Analytics | SEO



With eight years of online marketing experience, I am a Google and Bing certified marketer that uses insights gained from hard data to create and optimize online marketing and advertising campaigns that consistently exceed expectations.



With my Google Adwords, Bing Ads, and Analytics certifications, I use effective paid search campaigns and "whitehat" SEO practices to get new visitors on my client's websites and to complete their primary online goals. Online marketing was something I had self-taught myself while going to college because I found a genuine interest in it. I look forward to doing it every day 7 years later.


Why spend money on marketing if you don't know if it's working? Answer: you shouldn't be. I do not optimize campaigns on "gut feelings" or guesses, but rather work on things that are clearly working for the campaign according to data analysis. Nothing should be left up to chance when it affects the bottom line. My primary tool is Google Analytics but I have experience in Omniture Site Catalyst as well.


With years of experience in client-facing roles while working in the field, I am able to translate highly technical and possibly abstract discussion items into easily understandable reports and direct communication with my clients.
