I have a passion for creating stories and building audiences.
I have a master’s degree in communications and digital media (MCDM) from the University of Washington and completed my undergraduate studies in journalism at Western Washington University. I am on the Journalism Professional Advisory Board at Western and teach college-level digital marketing classes part-time. I have delivered speaking engagements at marketing, advertising and entertainment events, including Sundance, Content Marketing World, Association of National Advertisers, American Marketing Association, Seattle Interactive and Outdoor Retailer.
My wife is my lifetime CEO. We live in Tacoma, WA, with our daughter, son and border collie. In my spare time, I enjoy directing poorly-produced home videos, playing on mountains and contributing to or combating love handles.
