Owner & Partner
I head up the operations and client services for Robojuice and I am responsible for talking with prospects and the ongoing engagement with clients. I manage the relationships and the projects as well as teaming up with Kevin Dees to develop the planning and strategy for each client. I am a business partner with Kevin Dees at Robojuice, Business Website Leader, The Website Leader Podcast, and TypeRocket.
My early background is in motorsports and events with Michelin and BFGoodrich and then 22+ years in marketing communications with major brands like Michelin, Greenville Health System University Medical Center (now Prisma), Milliken, Piaggio Aero, Metropolitan Arts Council, Flight Safety Academy, The Palmetto Bank, Cooper Tires, Evel Knievel, The Cliffs, Erskine College, and FGP just to name a few. I've had the distinct privilege of working with a very wide variety of sectors and businesses. Eventually, it made the most sense to me to focus solely on providing web solutions for all clients.
After doing a few joint projects with Kevin Dees, I formally joined Robojuice in 2012 to partner with Kevin to build a shared vision for the company. We both believe in doing the right thing for each prospect and each client no matter what it takes. Honesty, integrity, transparency, and genuine care for individuals motivates me.
Owner & Partner
I have worked on sites for brands from the Fortune 500 to start-ups to non-profits. Brands like Michelin® Tires, Verizon Wireless, Denny’s, White Horse Inn, SEW, D&W Fine Pack, Clemson University, MoonClerk, and RIDGID.
For over a decade I have helped businesses win online and helped thousands of professionals master the web industry. I have done this through podcasting for SitePoint, speaking for WordCamp, creating the WordPress framework TypeRocket, contributing to Laravel core, and executing digital strategies at Robojuice.
My passion is for making the web a better experience for developers and for users. I enjoy finding the right tools and resources for developers to use that enhance their experience in developing great web products. I am enthusiastic about working with choice clients to help them see their potential and win online.
I am a self-taught software engineer and have contributed to Laravel core. I'm skilled in custom web application development. I enjoy overcoming daily challenges that require custom-developed solutions. The atmosphere of the tech and web development world is where I thrive. I enjoy researching new (or unfamiliar) technologies and building applications.
I also have a heart for developer experience and have grown tired of some environments my co-workers and I have had to program in. To help improve those conditions, I have moved into more managerial roles to help secure better practices and processes for software engineers.
I also enjoy other things. I enjoy hiking and am an amateur photographer. I love the outdoors and enjoy spending time admiring creation.
Everything we do hinges on our value of people. It's our culture.
Relationships Come First
People are the business.
Encourage and build up each other.
There is always a way to get better.
Work and Play Hard
Work and live life to the fullest.
Committed to Commitments
Integrity and discipline.
The Team Matters
We all build the business.
