Trusted by great SaaS companies


More about me.

I am a technical and analytical startup marketer with 12+ years of experience helping companies acquire more customers.

I was the first marketer at Sprout Social where I spent over 8 years building and scaling the inbound engine, helping grow the company from $0 - $80M+ in revenue. In this time, I have led a variety of areas including SEO, content marketing, paid advertising, conversion rate optimization, marketing automation, data & analytics, web development and more.

I enjoy working with marketing and sales leaders (and early stage founders) to solve hard problems and scale revenue growth.
