I have been designing for print and the web since 1999. I started out of necessity – the nonprofit I worked for didn’t have the money to hire an outside firm, so I stepped in, figured it all out and got it done in style. Little did I know I’d found my calling.
In 2007 built my own site. Four years later I moved to Costa Rica and have been a freelance Full Stack Marketer ever since.
I’ve easily had more than two dozen jobs in my life. I’ve never been fired but also never saw the point of keeping a job I didn’t like – life is too short to spend your days doing something you don’t enjoy.
My first job was at a law office one summer during high school, to earn the money to pay for my first car.
After opting not to accept my early admission to New York University, I got a gig managing one of the first Coffee Bean & Tea Leafs. When it went corporate, I took off for Alaska to go work on a fishing boat for 6 months.
I’ve also been a waiter, painter, construction worker, stage manager, piano teacher, factory worker, Executive Director of a chamber of commerce, insurance agent licensed in 30 states, mortgage broker and beyond. One of my goals in life has always been to be an old guy with a lot of crazy stories. So far, so good!
In 2006, I went all in on a real estate project, that ultimately imploded in the midst of the Great Recession. I took a vacation to Costa Rica to clear my head. I fell in love with the country and decided to rebuild my life here, with monkeys, iguana, sloths and some killer ocean views!

As a Full Stack Marketer, I have a wide variety of complimentary skills.
