Based in the suburbs of Baltimore, in Phoenix, MD, I work at an enterprise software company during the day and Jack’s dad! In my freetime, I am a YouTuber with a brand channel (jamzDOTnet) Land Rover and car collector, automobilia museum builder, and a real estate investor.
My digital career started in 1997 (I was one of those kids on a computer nobody knew what he was doing) developing websites. I’ve maintained my career in the digital marketing space ever since, having progressed through start-ups, .com’s, helping co-found companies in NYC and eventually sold them, enterprise companies, Washington DC, Northern Virginia, New York City, and now Baltimore, MD. But during this time, I always had interesting hobbies and projects from starting a vineyard and growing grapes, honey beekeeping, investing in real estate, backyard chickens, and all kinds of fun things!
I have an extremely strong background in the digital and real-time marketing space, with a keen ability to connect business challenges with simple to understand and execute business solutions.
My work has been published in numerous publications (Harvard Business Review, CMO Council, Sport Compact Car magazine, Baltimore Sun, Warren County Report, Baltimore City Paper, Baltimore Guide, and others). Also, I have been interviewed on nationally televised broadcasts including CNN, CTV Toronto News and Warren County headline news.
Previously, I worked at SAS Institute as a senior solutions consultant for 5 years, founded several online websites/startups during the .com boom (sold), helped co-found a start-up in New York City which was ranked among the best places to work in New York City (Conductor), worked for Optimost in New York City which was acquired by Interwoven and Autonomy (Cambridge, England), and worked at BeckITSystems in Washington DC, helping pioneer electronic medical records (EMR).
