About Me

For the past nine years, I’ve operated my own Internet based business. More specifically, I formulated, branded and launched a wart removal product called Wartrin. Since its launch, Wartrin has generated millions of dollars in online revenue. I have grown my business from $1,000/month to over $90,000/month in sales using a combination of SEO, PPC, video marketing, article writing, blogging and affiliate marketing. After a few years of running this business, I began diversifying in investment real estate; my wife and I now own a growing portfolio of 20+ rental units in Minneapolis. With our first baby on the way and both businesses successfully running on autopilot, I am pursuing new career opportunities where my skill set and experiences will be instrumental in assisting other organizations improve upon their online presence.

Before starting my own business in 2010, I worked as the Digital Manager for Prairie Moon Nursery (Winona, MN) where I was responsible for managing a wide variety of eCommerce and marketing related tasks. I designed custom WordPress themes, developed and managed online media ads, created FAQ videos and implemented a new custom shopping cart system. I also created and managed email marketing campaigns, assisted in the development and management of PPC campaigns and coordinated website customizations with international teams. Before Prairie Moon Nursery, I worked as the Website Operations Manager for Brian’s Toys (Fountain City, WI) where I oversaw website operations for an online business that sells 20k+ Star Wars related toys to 100k+ customers. In this role, I oversaw nearly every facet of web design and customization, quintupled the number of email subscribers and played a significant role in strategic planning with the CEO, Brian Semling.

Throughout my career, I have always pushed to deliver results that exceed expectations. It is this kind of commitment, energy and drive for success that I would bring to your organization. With my demonstrated success in start-up environments and my proven experience in niche markets, I believe my experiences and willingness to go the extra mile would be invaluable to your organization’s success. Thank you for your time and consideration in reviewing my portfolio.
