I've grown 4 straight tech companies (including my own SEO SaaS) at least 5X year-on-year with digital marketing over the past 9 years. Most recently, I grew $3 billion tech company VIPKID’s supply side by 700% in just 16 months.

Now looking to grow the next company in Sydney in a long-term role. The right fit: a tech-friendly company that wants to achieve dynamic growth using the latest in digital marketing technology.

I enjoy and thrive in leadership roles, having built and led marketing teams between 3 and 10 people in size.

(I write a lot about digital marketing. Some of my viral articles on the topic: on building my SEO SaaS, viral marketing, and how to grow a tech startup.)
