Welcome to my little piece of the Internet. I’m a digital technologist/enthusiast with 20 years experience in search, content strategy, development, and start-up management.
I have managed digital projects for hundreds of small businesses, held senior marketing positions for large corporations, and consulted fortune 100 brands. Currently, I’m a full time faculty member at Brigham Young University – Hawaii teaching digital entrepreneurship.
I did my graduate work in Information Technology – eBusiness at Carnegie Mellon University. I love using my education and experience in speaking on the transforming power of innovation in business.
My academic research focuses on the role of digital entrepreneurship in emerging markets of developing countries. In particular, I am interested in solutions that can enhance the capability and performance of entrepreneurs globally.
Recently I completed a field study in the Republic of Congo on how digital entrepreneurship training influences under-served entrepreneurs. Moving forward, I am studying the impact of entrepreneurship solutions ranging from zero budget entrepreneurship models to the monetary impact of artificial influence in online entrepreneurship.
My aim in these efforts will (hopefully) assist entrepreneurs in both impoverished and affluent areas in improving their life’s circumstances and provide economic growth to their communities.
My wife and I have six beautiful young children who constantly keep us on our toes. I’m heavily involved in the local entrepreneurship community and can be found blogging at mymarketer.net.
