Story
Tagline
LGBT Online Marketing professionally... Personally, I love traveling the world and meeting interesting, exciting new people. I learned early on that at the end of the day, who or what I remember has so much less to do with the little things in life, and all about the people I've met who have moved me or changed my life in some small or great way. Associating these people and these events with a time and a place, both physical and in my life, makes for the greatest memories I can ever ask for.
Introduction
I began my career in the gay & lesbian marketplace when I founded GayWired.com in May of 1995. I successfully led GayWired.com into becoming one of the premiere gay websites worldwide, translating that success to LesbiaNation.com and QTMagazine.com (gay travel site). In 2001, I expanded this online reach by launching a company focused on both developing niche-oriented websites for the gay & lesbian community and helping companies large and small reach these gay & lesbian consumers through this expanded network of websites, which included GayMonkey.com, GaySports.com, Navigaytion.com, PrideParenting.com and GayBusinessWorld.com, just to name a few.

Having sold these sites, my focus is now on the latest in advertising and marketing utilizing social networks and tailoring their opportunities to the GLBT community. I start with the basics of banner ads and e-mail, but expand into the more advanced world of blogs, social networking and online video, and how those components can tie into an overall online marketing campaign including banner ads for some of the best performance for my clients.

My goal is to work with companies wishing to increase the efficiency and performance of their online marketing endeavors, using some of the "tried and tested" of the past few years and merging with some of the new, since "new" is where the eyeballs are continually migrating to on a daily basis.
