I lead Growth at Urban Airship, a mobile services platform provider that develops tools for marketers using the mobile channel to engage and retain customers on mobile apps. I lead business development efforts, strategic partnerships and agency development while working with brands and brand agencies to enable them to successfully engage with the increasing demands of today's connected mobile audiences.
In my past lives I built global e-commerce initiatives and online business solutions for large corporations and major brands with integrated interactive content and strategy programs. I have been fortunate enough to be honored with creative and business awards, including three INC 500/5000 awards. I am conditioned to growth.
I enjoy presenting and speaking at industry events and conferences where I can share what I have learned. Over the past 10 years I have keynoted, been a panelist or led programs at over one hundred events. I wrote TheEmailWars.com for over six years and regularly contribute to MarketingSherpa, MarketingProfs, iMediaConnection, MarketingVox and ClickZ and other news publications.
I live and work obsessively in Portland, Oregon, allowing me to focus on the fast-paced world of mobile development while still always being connected to life here and abroad. I enjoy spending time with my wife, two young sons and our friends.
