I'm a social anthropologist, futurist, brand strategist, podcaster, and advertising agency principal with over 20 years of marketing communications experience. Through my career journey, I have been awarded with multiple American Advertising Awards, recognized as a 2010 “Most Influential Businessmen” nominee by the Orlando Business Journal, and a past president of the American Advertising Federation-Orlando. I am a digital native and online services pioneer but am just as comfortable and skilled in non-digital marketing and advertising media.
