What are you up to?
I am really enjoying learning everything I can about an ever-evolving Search Engine Marketing industry and sharing that knowledge and EngineWorks’ know-how with clients and other partners.
Most importantly I’m being a father, my son just turned one-year-old in March (our first). He does something new and amazing every day. Also TRYING to find time to catch a few March Madness games with an eye on my bracket!
What are you into?
Besides trying to be the best father I can and helping my company grow…
I’m a life-long huge sports fan so I try and catch as many games as I can (no more Ducks basketball for a while). I also love good food, whether that means preparing it myself for family and friends or finding a new great restaurants (preferably in new cities we travel to).
What do you like most about Portland?
Portland has all the natural resources I love…an hour to the beach, an hour to the mountain. I also have great friends and family here. Our restaurants (and beer of course) are top-notch and lots of parks for kids and dogs! It is big enough that we have most of everything, but small enough that I run into people I know all the time.
Why should I consider EngineWorks for Search Engine Marketing?
We immerse ourselves in your business and become a part of your marketing team. Proven. Personal. Professional. You will always know what we are doing, why we are doing it and what the next step is.
What do you always look for in a new city you visit?
The best falafel. Started during a trip to Europe when I found the ultimate falafel…out of the way Jewish neighborhood in Paris (Lenny Kravitz fav too), found it during stop two in Paris, had to make a special trip back before I flew home. Now when I go to new cities I try and find the best in town…none have really ever come close.
