Over the past 16 years, I've lived and breathed digital marketing. My agency and in-house experience have encompassed nearly everything Digital Marketing has to offer. I've also experienced all kinds of team environments, from working with established teams to building a team from scratch.

Digital Marketing & Strategy, personally implemented or managed:
- Organic and Paid Search (SEO & PPC),
- High-level Content Strategy
- Organic and Paid Social Media,

For the majority of my career, I've worked remotely and would prefer to continue to do so. I'm a U.S. Green Card holder, and primarily work in the United States, but split my time between the U.S. and Cape Town, South Africa, where my family lives.
