I am an online marketer living near Salt Lake City, Utah with my wife and 5 kids. I’ve recently moved into the Head of Digital Marketing role at Qualtrics – an amazing opportunity that I’m super excited about.

Before taking my current position, I was the Director of Digital Marketing for Blendtec, where I was fortunate enough to build and work with an amazing team, focusing on our customer’s journey and engagement with the brand across all digital channels and properties. Prior to that, I was the Associate Director of Search Marketing at 1-800 Contacts where I oversaw the paid and organic search strategy for the 1-800 Contacts and Glasses.com brands. Before that, I served as Director of Paid Search Marketing for Mercent Corporation and even longer ago I held a number of online and website marketing positions within Overstock.com.

Before Overstock, I worked mainly in IT and NOC positions, securing my position in this world as a geek. I completed an undergraduate degree from Brigham Young University in Neuroscience, and am still thinking about returning to school for a graduate degree.
