About Me

Hello! You can remember my name by thinking of "two roomies." Nice to meet you.

Defined Persona + Definitive Buyer's Journey = Great Content Creation

I believe the foundation to making great content lies in understanding exactly who you are targeting and where you are trying to lead them.

Licensed Prof. Engineer + Awesome Writing Skills = Tech Marketing Fanatic (me)

I have a unique combination of technical expertise and marketing savviness. Just thinking about marketing lights me up and seeing the results of my efforts is just the icing on the cake. I am highly competitive and results-driven.

I'm a graduate of Seth Godin's altMBA.

I'd love to work with you. We'll get some serious work done but have some fun in the process!
