I was born in Oregon, raised in Desert Hot Spring, CA. I graduated from Palm Springs High School in 1997. I went on a service mission for two years from 1997-1999 to South Carolina where I helped in schools and worked with community organizations. In 1999 I enlisted in the US Navy to become an Air Traffic Controller.
After graduating Boot Camp and “A” school, I was selected to serve in arduous sea duty aboard the USS Belleau Wood (LHA-3) and then transitioned to the USS Essex (LHD-2) from 2000-2003 out of Japan. At the time this was the largest “hull swap” in the history of the Navy.
After Japan, I was assigned to NAF El Centro where I enjoyed working in a tower. I finished my enlistment in Jun 2006 and move to Utah to attend The University of Utah. I completed a 5 year degree in 3 years with a B.S. degree.
I jumped in to the SEO world and workforce in 2008. I worked for and with many companies in and around the Utah area. I always knew that I needed to move to the Bay Area and in 2013 I made the jump out. I live in Silicon Valley to work with companies on SEO issues and I work with Local SEO, International SEO, as well as Technical SEO issues.
I love working with all kinds of companies of all sizes. I do work with legal departments to understand the SEO issues at hand as an SEO Expert Witness.
