Story
Tagline
Search engine marketing agency founder who loves pinball, golf and his dog Hank.
Introduction

Business:

I'm currently Principal at Add3, managing the Portland office and team. 

Prior to Add3, I was President and founder of Amplify Interactive and co-founder & Past-President of SEMpdx. I've been doing search engine marketing since 1999 (before there was a Google!) and I started my own search engine marketing firm Amplify Interactive in 2003. 

Amplify Interactive grew to become a leading Portland area SEM firm working with some of the most recognized brands in the silicon forest. Amplify Interactive was acquired by Add3 in October 2013.

Personal:

I love college football (Go Beavs!), own a pinball machine, I likes to golf when I can find the time and I love biking around town when the weather's nice. I also like staying on top of the new bars & restaurants in town and love giving out recommendations. My dog Hank is a regular fixture at Amplify Interactive HQ, and writes a monthly column for the neighborhood paper the Hollywood Star Reporter as "Hollywood Hank"
