I label myself an Entrepreneur. Some other labels attributed by others: MIT $100K, Finalist, #1 Entrepreneurship Competition in World; Business Professionals of America (Competition Winner – Entrepreneurship), TiE Social Entrepreneurs, Steering Committee Member; HULT International School of Business , Panelist at “Entrepreneurship: A State of Mind; Harvard Business School, Entrepreneurial Marketing Course Sponsor…
I use the word “Workerteer” to signify a new approach to volunteering and giving. It is very simple to me…you can give one of two things, time (workerteer) or money (philanthropist). I am working towards building a platform where people in the hyper-connected world can now find work that matters to them and assist in both pursuits.
What are you searching for? Contact me. I can help. I have 10 years experience in “search” – Google, Yahoo, MSN, etc. I built a Search Marketing company from scratch. I’ve achieved thousands of top10 rankings and generated millions of unique visitors in web traffic. If you are a business owner looking to increase sales, traffic or revenue I can help.
I make no claims of being a real philosopher, other than the desire to be one. Few people these days are paid to think. I credit American Indians with the best summary of Social Capitalism: “Kill only what you need to survive…and use all parts of the Animal”. I was awarded Cato University’s Bastiat Scholarship to study Liberty which is among my favorite scholarly topics.
Fun stuff…all work and no play makes for a dull existence. See my list of websites. As a webmaster many of my real-life interests have an associated website or mailing lists. In the spirit of entrepreneurship – when something useful does not exist, I create it. I started a group of 60+ people in Boston who have an interest in KiteSurfing and 200+ people with an interest in RollerHockey (2 of my sports interests).
I am available to speak (usually on SEO topics) on a per day or half-day basis (plus airfare) at any time. Portions of this website will cover the topics I am qualified to speak on. Management presentations on Search Marketing are interactive, meaning I do not present a PowerPoint deck, my goal is to understand key business issues and provide hands-on consultative solutions and leadership instruction.
I firmly believe that entrepreneurs create much of the innovation and positive change in the world. An entrepreneur is quite different than a businessperson – it’s a state of mind. A technologist is one who harnesses technology to solve a problem.
I have travelled nearly 20 countries and most states and major cities, my blog usually has up-to-the minute reports and pictures. Adventure travel (usually in pursuit of Kiteboarding spots) is without question my favorite pass-time. Travelogs and maps are kept online by invite.
I am currently full-time at JAZD Markets, Inc. a recently funded Series-A Startup based in Andover, Mass. Prior to JAZD, I was the Founder of SpiderSplat Consulting, Inc. a Search Engine Marketing company in Boston. I also have been involved in dozens of startups as early-stage team member, mentor, advisor, consultant, or founder. I also work as a Business Broker – specializing in M&A transactions for small web & technology startups.
