In a crowded marketplace, fitting in is a failure. In a busy marketplace, not standing out is the same as being invisible.” – Seth Godin




When I was in 4th grade I visited the State Capitol Building with my class. I decided to spit off the top of the rotunda to be one of the cool kids. Clearly, I got in trouble. When my Mom asked why I did it I told her that I had to make sure I would be able to spit if a fly flew in my mouth.

I figured out pretty quickly I liked to tell stories. My storytelling has improved since 4th grade, but I still obsess over the details of telling stories that connect with people.

Story Centric Marketing

Seth Godin said it best.

We drink the can, not the beverage.

Marketing is the art of telling stories that allow the customers to insert themselves. I’ve learned that a list of features or benefits will never match up to a story that allows the customer to sell themselves. Instead of telling them what the product can do, help them decided why they must have the product.

Web Design

The web is changing. Rapidly. More so now than ever your company is judged by your online presence. Everything from social media, to email marketing, to your website, has the ability to tell the right story to your customers.

Knowing this, it’s easy to say “style over function” when it comes to web design. That’s not my approach. I know that every website has a different goal. Some are built to convert, some are built to inform, and some are just built for fun.

Starting with goal drives me to build a website from the start that hits the target. I’ve helped design sites that convert like crazy, and some that don’t. I have built sites that make people stop and say “wow”, and some that are kind of “meh”. What I have made sure to do is build to the goal.

Content Marketing

Traditional marketing talks at people. Content marketing talks with them.  – Doug Kessler

Content marketing rocks. It goes hand in hand with telling great stories, but content marketing puts the story in the right format.  This is what drove me to learn video production and editing. This is why I learned to build websites (hey, you found one!). I wanted to be able to tell the stories in the right way.

From blogs, to videos, to social media, if it needs content, I’m down to make it.

Video End to End

Video is my medium of choice for telling stories. The combination of visuals, pacing, music, timing, editing, and everything in between gives you so many avenues to create the story you want to tell. A picture is great, but a picture never has the emotional attachment a video can create.

This passion has lead me to gain experience in the video production process from end to end. From idea conceptualization, to story boarding, to gather footage and assets, to final editing, I have been involved in all of it during my career.

While I’m proud of my ability to edit and produce great videos, what I really pride myself on is coming up with great videos. All the editing in the world can’t save the wrong concept. I love working in teams to put together a story that hits the goal of the client.

The Difference

Let’s say this is an interview (and let’s face it, if you found my site you are probably interviewing me on some level). If you asked me what the one thing that separates me from any other marketing out there, it’s my ability to work in marketing as a business owner.

Working in marketing as a business owner has allowed me to gain valuable experience in regards to setting budgets, watching priorities, dealing with the end customer, and really dealing with the holistic picture of the business.

I don’t live on a marketing island. I see marketing as a piece of the whole. I think it’s a pretty big piece, but I know it’s not the only one. This helps drive decisions that lead to revenue, not just cool marketing.
