About

For more than 20 years, I’ve worked in digital media, design and entrepreneurship.

Starting in 1996, I built my first website and soon after began consulting and producing for new and established brands around the country.  Arriving in Nashville in 2002, I held gigs at various music companies and entertainment startups, advising on new media and web-based strategy.

In 2004, I joined echomusic, helping them grow to an 80-person digital services agency representing the biggest artists and entertainment brands in the world.  echo was acquired by Ticketmaster in 2007 and in 2008 I relocated to Denver and co-founded Strategic Blend, a digital marketing firm.  With offices in three cities and serving over 300 clients in video web, engagement, identity and business analysis, we later evolved to become realistic.

Along the way I’ve created podcasts, videos, short films, startups and many other creative projects.
