I have been a Sales Person, Sales Manager, GSM, GM and Partner in the Car biz. I have work with Lexus, Toyota, Honda and Chrysler over the last 12 years.

I have recently (last 5 years) become so totally obsessed with inbound and internet marketing, that I spend all my free time of the last two years studying for and recently receiving both my Master's in Internet Marketing from the University of San Francisco and my board tested Dissertation in both Conversion Rate Optimization and Web Analytics from Market Motive. I am also a Certified Google Advertising Professional and a Certified Google Analytics Practitioner.

I am passionate about the bottom-line and I always hated the fact that I was spending 20, 30, 50 thousand a month in print, direct mail and radio and I could not quantify an ROI. That all changed when I realized that not only in Internet Marketing a sky high ROI, but it is ultra-quantifiable.

I love it and it is my passion!!
