Founder and CEO of Modmacro, Author, Small Business Enthusiast
I want to challenge your thinking as well as traditional internet marketing tactics. We don’t take a one size fits all approach to small business marketing and PR. We do our homework and select the marketing methods that offer the greatest return for your business, industry, and budget.
An engineer by education, I have focused more than a decade on software and small business marketing. Founding Modmacro in 2010, my role as CEO involves directing the company while remaining intimately involved in client projects on a daily basis.
I’m a strong believer in the value of formal education, having earned degrees in Business Information Systems, Mechanical Engineering, Mathematics, and Physics; as well as a few others.
