Career Defining Moment
From a career/business perspective, probably the Marketo Revvie award, a Revvie finalist, being a Marketo Champion and alum. Proud to have 3 patents to my name as well.
Biggest Learning Moment
When I was hired as the Director of Marketing for a start-up in Colorado, realized and gained a true appreciation of the breadth of responsibilities across ‘all’ marketing areas. Along with understanding how technology can assist the efforts between sales & marketing.
Passions Outside Work
I enjoy the outdoors (camping, fishing, hunting, ATV, golf); avid college sports fan (Go Blue!), spending time working in the yard and house projects. I enjoy cooking, especially dutch-oven and outdoor cooking. Love spoiling my grandkids as much as possible. I listen to classic rock most times, but enjoy country and love concerts! My wife and I love going on cruises and also love to go movies at the theater – there’s just something about the big screen, fresh popcorn and the new lounge seats.
