Who Am I?
The majority of my 20 years in the online B2B space has been spent walking the line between business and technology during divestitures and mergers, new product/brand introductions, legacy product/brand sunsettings, and during aggressive growth periods and brand defenses, all since 2001.
I’m just as comfortable talking to business folks about the Software Development Life Cycle, as I am with talking to the technology folks about business requirements, objectives, constraints, KPI’s, short-term timelines and long-term roadmaps, and, let’s not forget the need for data and analytics.
What I enjoy doing.
I enjoy strategizing ways of accelerating the sales pipeline via digital experience optimization, inclusive of campaigning, tagging, data collection, and, large scale data synthesis efforts like business intelligence, visitor intelligence, and account–based performance intelligence.
My path, thus far.
My career is underscored by four separate $10B+ organizations, two multinational mergers, numerous divestitures, deep agency, contractual, as well as entrepreneurial and higher education experiences.
My academic preparation.
On that higher education point, I’ve experienced the full spectrum: Associate’s Degree, Bachelor’s Degree, Master’s Degree, and a Doctoral Degree*. I promised my wife I wouldn’t get any more degrees… she wasn’t amused when I joked about getting a J.D.
This page is about my professional contributions to the world.

My skill set transcends business size, type, or industry.
Jareau and I worked together for about 7 years. In his earlier role as the Help Desk, Jareau was always quick to find solutions and troubleshoot complex problems. He had extraordinary attention to detail and always went the extra mile to help clients. In his later role, he spearheaded the SEO/SEM program and provided tutorials for the web editor community. He has a firm grasp of not only best practices, but is also an excellent teacher and trainer. He would be a tremendous asset to any organization.
Thank you for the great work you have done to help our business grow. We are a better organization as a result of your efforts. Wishing you continued success, for you and your beautiful family.
You have paved the way with [frankly] awesome analysis with visitor intelligence and so much more. Your great work contributed to the team’s ongoing success and you have been an outstanding colleague.
Jareau is a professional who can be counted on and has always made me look great on all projects. His thoroughness, precision, and expertise have always shined through. He presents incredibly well and is very clear getting to the heart of the information needed. You can count on his insights and recommendation to point to success.
Though my time was short with Tyco, my experience was great. Not only have I dove into a large corporation for the first time and learned how they actually function, but had the opportunity to work with talented, ridiculously smart individuals. One individual that needs a big honorable mention is Jareau. Seeing that I was really new to the corporate world, he graciously took under his wing to show me the ropes. Getting to work with Jareau was a real pleasure, not only does he have a vast knowledge base of what he does but he is quick and effective at it. One of the best things about Jareau and working with him was the challenge. His ideas caused me to really push my skills and think out of the box. Our lunch conversations went past the mind numbing, “what did you do this weekend”, and went to more intellectual topics that gets the mind turning and wondering. That is a priceless attribute and something I am really thankful for to have experienced in my career.

I paused for a moment to look at myself in the mirror and take in the enormity of what had just happened. The white dust on my hands and face brought to mind those images I had of me at an old age. I thought to myself “this is your second chance”.
