I spent over a decade accelerating growth of my own media start-ups, working from the ground up to serve clients in a BIG way. I’m not just passionate about helping businesses … It’s my obsession!
I recently joined Artonic to go even BIGGER! I take real-world, strategic know-how and pair it with expertise in web and digital marketing. I make sure my clients increase their visibility & exposure online. This translates into greater brand awareness, more sales, and the thing we’re shooting for–more money in your pocket!
How do you stay so positive?
Coffee, exercise, meditation, and 7 hours of sleep per night! Staying positive is something I learned through many years of sports and being an entrepreneur. Humans are like computers, positive input equals positive output and vice versa. When in doubt, stay positive and things will work out. Mediation is something I have been practicing for the last year. It’s an amazing tool and I encourage everyone to explore it. I use an app called the Insight Timer app. It is completely free and it has helped me to make meditating a habit.
How do you balance work and your family?
I try to maintain the same schedule Monday-Sunday. Life balance is a tricky thing to achieve and I struggled with this for a long time. My opinion is that life balance and time management are one in the same which is the reason for keeping a consistent schedule.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
The thing I enjoy most is working with my team. So many smart, creative, and unique individuals. I have a sports background and when I compare the Artonic team to any successful sports team I have been a part of in the past, the dynamic is very similar. We all work very well together and everyone has a role and contributes to the overall success of the organization. It’s awesome!

How valuable is a website to a medium-sized business?
It is the quintessential foundation for all marketing efforts. In many cases, it represents your store front and this particular store front sits curbside on the busiest highway in the world, the internet. A bad website experience can be detrimental to the bottom line of an organization. On the flip-side, a great website can streamline your processes and make it easier for interested parties to do business with you.
What are the benefits for mid-sized businesses of hiring a company like Artonic?
One of the major benefits of working with Artonic is our responsiveness. We answer our phones and respond to emails in a quick and timely manner, and we are diligent about follow-up. This is rare for companies like ours. I cannot tell you home many times our clients have mentioned they chose to do to business with us for this very reason. We pride ourselves in making this a priority and by doing so it makes like easier for those who choose to work with us.
What can Artonic do for a company? What is Artonic capable of?
Our team is so versatile there really isn’t too much that we cannot handle. We encourage our clients that if they have something in mind to bring it to the table. If the project is a good fit for us, and our team is a good fit for the client, good chances we will pursue the opportunity. As far as what can we do for a company? The best example I can give is a company called Grizzly Glue (formerly Excel Glue). Here is the punch list of items completed for them:
- New company name
- New company brand (including a logo)
- Custom product photography
- Custom video
- E-commerce website
- PPC advertising management
- Social media management
- Public relations campaign
- Ongoing website support
The best part is today Grizzly Glue is thriving. They are adding new customers from all over the USA and it appears as-if their ship has finally sailed thanks to our efforts.
