My name is Tadd.
For over ten years, I’ve worn many hats. I have been a web designer, front-end web developer, marketing manager, project manager, print designer, mobile game designer, marketing coordinator, systems administrator, and more. I’ve had the honor to lead full teams of talent to increase sales, web traffic, and brand reach.
I have also stepped outside the norm and into new media endeavors. Whether it is designing websites, front end development, learning how to code iOS games, graphic design for print, 3D graphics, fiction books, or blogging. I’ve enjoyed creating games, 3D graphics, and working with some augmented reality.
While working as a project manager and a marketing manager, I saw success at expanding sales, market focus, and organizing campaigns. My previous work experience has solidified my communication skills, and I work well with a team or individually.
To build worlds. To groom heroes. To develop villains. Writing is something that’s always been near and dear to my heart.
Planning your online marketing plan is not as simple as you’d think. Taking into consideration everything from SEO to social media can be daunting..
From musicians to colleges to non-profits to million dollar businesses. For nearly twenty years, I’ve had the opportunity to help others grow their web business.
