Toronto born, Windsor raised. My interest in web design and development started back in my Grade 11 computer science class when I designed my first website using Notepad and plain HTML. After graduating from Holy Names High School, I continued along the computer science path by enrolling in the 3-year Computer Programmer Analyst program at Windsor’s St. Clair College. During the summer between my second and third year, I was hired by Niwo Management as their full-time Junior Web Developer. Understanding the importance of experience in the field, I pushed my graduation date back a year and attended school part-time. After graduation in 2008, I continued working full-time at Niwo Management until 2011.
While freelancing as a web designer for most of 2011, I began to see a shift in the importance of overall digital marketing, rather than just web design. I began educating myself on digital marketing strategies such as: search engine optimization, email marketing, blogging and content marketing. This eventually led me to a position with Douglas Marketing Group as Online Marketing Director where I remained until September of 2016. In 2014, I earned my status as a Hubspot Certified Partner and am currently in the process of also becoming Google AdWords certified.
Outside of work, I spend most of my time complaining about the Toronto Maple Leafs, living a healthy and fit lifestyle, reading books such as: Outliers, The Martian, Hatching Twitter and Zer0es and watching TV shows like: Silicon Valley, Mr. Robot, Lost and Stranger Things.
