Summary

My passion is in training and coaching others and directing leadership teams and operations (project) management. I feel at ease leading project development, both business and software and the necessary professional correspondence. I can speak to programmers as well as I can speak to salesmen. I am excellent at turning "Ideas into Operations". I work by the code "An idea is only as great as the operation you implement to drive it."

I want to explore these strengths in a technical and informational team environment that requires me to grow as a leader. I always find a solution, no question is without a constructive answer. This is why I love to learn. The more I learn, the less I know and that inspires me. I'm passionate about driving one's full potential to kinetic action day-in and day-out.

I have a decade of experience designing themes and integrating plug-ins in WordPress across clients' and my own businesses. I have created hundreds of WP websites across dozens of industries. I have worked with Google Analytics since it first launched and built an SEO business from the ground up over a span of five years. I'm a self-driven entrepreneur equally comfortable in virtual and physical office spaces.

I look forward to learning more while driving results.

Work experience

Aug 2009Present

Search Engine Optimization (SEO); Website Design & Social Media Strategy

Manifest Income - Creator / Owner

I developed the business and client-base. I ran project management and relations for over twenty clients concurrently. At peak I billed $20,000-$30,000 monthly for recurring SEO and design services. I managed outsourcing of project work and new account sales. I created many different designs using WordPress mobile ready themes. When Google fundamentally changed the landscape of organic search starting in 2012, I liquidated the SEO division as the margins were stripped. I understand the evolution of SEO and where it is today very well.  I focus mainly on mobile-responsive, professional WordPress theme design for clients currently. I have many examples of my work below.
