I am passionate about two very similar things: business and golf. I love looking at and understanding the numbers behind the statement, “If a business can find and satisfy customers often enough and cost effectively enough, the result is a profit.” Depending on the day, these numbers can bring more joy than the numbers on my golf scorecards (as long as I avoid the double bogeys). I put myself through THE Ohio State University on an ROTC scholarship and served in the US Navy during Operation Desert Storm. Fast forward to 2018 and I am an entrepreneur in one of the most exciting industries imaginable.
Golf (we have a daughter named Augusta and had a dog named Divot), sports (Go Bucks), kicking back with friends and family, and beating my nieces and nephews at cornhole.
While in the Navy we sank a fishing trawler with 15 tons of cocaine on board. Even more impressive, I ate 10 Skyline Cheese Coney’s in one sitting.
After 25 years of engineering, management, manufacturing, multi-million-dollar projects, tight budgets and deadlines, I have taken my skills to the digital world! The saying “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks” doesn’t apply to me. The team I have working for me, combined with my experience, are aiming to turn the tide of the digital marketing and web design scene in Ohio. The digital marketing and web design world include so many things that excite me, including having a designer on-hand to Photoshop all my pictures!
Gathering with my family to read Harry Potter, going to the movies with my son, watching my daughter’s latest tricks, boats, cars and golf.
My little white lie: “I am 29”, is old enough to legally drink.
In short, I am a problem solver (not the Rubik’s Cube kind). Not only do I love meeting new people and learning about their businesses, but I am also able to tap into their most sought-after business goals and learn how we can help achieve them. I also consider myself the “Bob the Builder” of BLD. I aim to successfully build the bridge between being in business development and being your most trusted consultant when it comes to growing your business and helping you face down the challenges that you may come across.
My Doberman, Grace, being a recreational cook, spending free time with family and friends, and being the #1 fan of my husband’s band!
My husband and I recently bought some land and are going country! We already have 5 beehives!
I am our web development chameleon. The web is perpetually evolving and changing, and so am I. While my skin doesn’t change color with my surroundings, I am always expanding my knowledge of the newest technologies and techniques to improve our process and deliver to our clients. I turn design into functionality and build applications that help meet your goals.
Traveling, kitesurfing, and cycling
I had a close encounter with a shark while kitesurfing in South Africa…too close.
