About Me

what a nerd!


Originally from Michigan, I now call the beautiful city of St. Augustine, Florida, my home. For the past 14 years, I have dedicated myself to building and growing a native ad network. I began my journey as a web developer and steadily climbed the ranks, eventually becoming an engineering manager and later the VP of Products. In an exciting turn of events, we were acquired last year, which opened new doors for me.

When I'm not immersed in the world of technology, I find solace in nature. Backpacking, kayacking, and exploring the great outdoors with my wife, Kristal, and our three dogs are some of my favorite pastimes. I have an insatiable thirst for knowledge, constantly seeking to understand how businesses function inside and out. This curiosity has been immensely valuable in developing roadmaps, creating impactful features, prioritizing initiatives, and even supporting my teammates' understanding of the bigger picture.
