Welcome to the center of my universe. Modern Digital Marketer was created as a portal to view my journey as a digital and international brand marketer. In TheMoDiMa you will find wisdom, successes, failures, personal experiences, lifestyle choices, unparalleled and invaluable advice on marketing, and detailed research on what marketing has become in today’s modern world.

In my opinion I believe there are marketing tactics that are fundamental when it comes to selling something to someone. 

However, with new mediums to reach consumers and technological advancements that make our lives easier, the marketing landscape is shifting.

I believe that 99% of the brands on Earth have the capacity to achieve success in their markets. What success is depends on the creators of the brand and their intention behind it.

Since leaving California in 2009, I’ve been to over twenty countries, worked in three continents, traveled over 5,000 miles on a dozen different motorcycles, written over 250,000 words, and found my passion along the way. Jobs of mine outside of my current profession were…
  • Wedding Caterer
  • Farm-hand
  • Bartender
  • Jumphouse Installer
  • Event Planner
  • Model
  • Waiter
  • Master of Ceremony
  • Coach
  • English Tutor
  • English Teacher
  • Professional Poker Player
  • Tour Guide
  • Food Critic
  • (Send me an email if you’re interested hearing about any of these experiences)

All of these experiences have helped me understand a little more than a smidgen about the world we live in. It’s defined my ability to figure out what people want, and given me the knowledge that willpower, empathy, and data are the most important factors towards being a successful marketer in multiple countries.

I chose to become a digital marketer because it was the best way to express my creativity. After dropping out of college as a multimedia design undergraduate, I felt that being able to visualize success for the people around me allowed me to visualize my value and purpose in life. Building a brand from conception to a thriving business is one of the most exciting things I’ve done and it gives me goosebumps with every win. Every KPI hit. Every product sold. Every happy client.
