What I read

SkillCrush, HubSpot Blog, Forbes, Wall Street Journal, pretty much anything that catches my eye or that I feel can help me grow my knowledge in my field or that I just find interesting and fun.

Side projects

Have consulted on or been a co-founder on numerous start-ups and projects from a marketing point of view. Co-founded a user-trading commerce site, where people bartered for goods and services, and eventually sold it, among other projects.

Ideal team

I like working with small agile teams. Clients that might just need guidance to show them how to get there, and exploring the possibilities of what great marketing can do when implemented properly. Having a sense of humor & being flexible is a plus too.
