Digital Marketing Book
I grew up in Houston, Texas where I attended high school until moving to San Antonio for college. 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. I was opening up many marketing books to educate myself about key tactics for results. Being a speaker had not crossed my mind yet. 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.
