If you have ever wondered what happens when you meld digital strategy, software engineering, and a knack for analytical data into one entrepreneur, your answer is right here. Since 2003, I have been studying and implementing modern strategy and engineering practices to get the highest possible quality product to market. Solving difficult problems and asking more questions is not only my profession, but also my true passion in the world.

Many years ago, I realized that the way of traditional marketing strategies, while still effective, were rather going out-of-style. I took that as my cue to look for a more effective way of marketing. I figured out early on that digital marketing and the way of social media had become a nice and “easy” way to convert potential customers to actual buyers. Knowing the tricks of the digital marketing trade can help you achieve your dream.

Right now, I spend my days as a Senior Software Engineer at LeadPages. LeadPages is a conversion company. We make a piece of software that allows users to create highly-converting, responsive landing pages that generate leads for their marketing campaigns. As well as my work at LeadPages, I am also the Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board of my own digital strategy startup, Finnesota.

As a software engineer, I am usually writing in Python, Go, or JavaScript. I am familiar with many different frameworks in each language and am very proficient with their usage. Also, for better or worse, I have worked with WordPress for quite some time.

In April of 2009, I played a major part in the grand re-opening of my father’s neighborhood marketing and advertising business. Since that grand re-opening, I have helped him maintain the business by dealing with the social media aspects of the business and assisting in marketing.

I also have the recent honor of being very involved as one of the organizers for the PyMNtos (Minnesota Python User Group). We meet on the second Thursday of every month at Clockwork Active Media Systems. Please come check it out!

If you have any questions or business propositions, feel free to contact me anytime. I am always looking for new and exciting opportunities.
