& Road Warrior
We build the internet and I spend most of my days staying out of everyone’s way. We have a talented team and I try not to interfere with their skill deployment.
I love helping clients use the internet to build their business and grow. My role is to discuss strategy, develop ideas and plan for the client’s future. I have the best job in the world, however, if I could find a way to get paid to ride my Harley that job would start tomorrow. If you ever wonder why a dog likes to hang his head out of the car window, ride a motorcycle.
