Nov 12, 2021

I've been called a thought leader and an expert, but I've also been called bad names by trolls, so it balances out. My job is leading digital strategy for a kick-ass agency called Cornett in Lexington, Ky. (2021 Ad Age Small Agency Gold Winner in the Southeast Region). My experiences have given me the opportunity to speak at conferences, write three books and be called all sorts of superlatives by Forbes, Business Week, Entrepreneur and others. To serve the small business community, I offer a few select marketing coaching calls each month. Let's connect!

I host a pair of podcast on C-Suite Radio. Digging Deeper - Make Creativity Your Business Advantage is a weekly interview series focused on creativity and marketing. Winfluence - The Influence Marketing Podcast dives deep into experts on influencer marketing and is a supplement to my latest book. I'm also on the Global Influencer Marketing Advisory Board, an industry directional organization founded by Audience2Media, a UK firm.

Some people know me from founding, which at one point was one of the top marketing blogs in the world according to AdAge. I've been involved in some really cool projects over the years that have won awards and recognition. I'm particularly proud of helping form the strategy for Wonderopolis, an education effort by the National Center for Families Learning (NCFL) which was called one of the top 50 websites in the world by Time Magazine in 2013. Projects I've been a part of have also won SAMMY Awards, Shorty Awards and dozens of regional ADDY Awards.

Some people call me insightful. Some call me funny and engaging. My kids just roll their eyes and call me Dad. I dig bourbon and sports.
