According to Facebook: I started my career 30 years ago in marketing, advertising, and sales management, but quickly acquired a taste for launching and growing entrepreneurial ventures. I’ve helped launch a home automation company, engineer and sell home theater and high end home automation, founding and leading bands, launching magazines and a television station for Ziff-Davis, and winning awards for his retail business, Glass & Powder Boardshop.
According to LinkedIN: I’m an entrepreneur, husband, and father in Richmond, VA. Founder of Rocket Pop Media, a boutique interactive agency specializing in strategic planning, graphic design, copywriting, Web development, social media strategy, HD video, mobile application development, and social campaigns. I’m a technology freak, into guitars, music, gadgets, Apple, & social media in #RVA!
I have an affection for brand and product launches, having partnered with organizations ranging from 2-200 employees to develop their identity and launch their marketing & advertising efforts. An experienced leader, solutions facilitator, and team builder. Accomplished in marketing, HD media production, website design & implementation, social media strategy, and sales.
I’ve spoken to groups ranging from 20-400 people, specifically about social media strategy for small business, overcoming personal challenges, best practices, and leveraging video for business marketing, among other topics. An articulate and compelling communicator, goal-driven believer in accountability, and who is unfazed by challenges or hardships.
Specialties: Social media strategy, brand development and launch, brand and media consulting, digital video production, web strategy and development, Macintosh platform expertise and troubleshooting, creative direction
According to Me: I’m an old grey guy with great taste in guitars (lacking in the skill set to play them well), with a remarkable, beautiful wife, and a son who’s just as stubborn as the combination of DNA from Cara and myself. He’s awesome, he’s opinionated, he’s Bowie. I love playing with my current band (Strummer), and reminisce fondly with my bandmates from Just Because from 1989-1995. I love our dogs, Izzy and Ian, and feel content and at ease in our historic home in the museum district. My Rocket Pop family is the best, as is my old Glass & Powder Boardshop crew. Love you guys!
