I grew up in Houston, Texas where I attended high school until moving to San Antonio for college. During school, I found I had an interest in business. I created side businesses while in school, such as selling electronics on auctions. I found that much more experience is needed to be successful. I took jobs at multiple organizations until I graduated with a marketing degree from the University of Texas San Antonio. Soon after graduation, I worked at an oil & gas publishing company and at Google. I was approached with a position at Google to help market one of their growing products, which was Google places. Following the initial projects, I helped market events and grow products, such as Google Fiber, Google Plus, and Google Apps. I also was a Google Analytics, AdWords Apps Speaker at Google sponsored events Realizing that many organizations needed help with understanding new marketing tools, I decided to start conducting training for companies throughout the country.
