When I’m not deep into SEO spreadsheets, figuring out what the next big game is, or figuring out how I can make TechRaptor bigger and better for my team – you’ll find me thinking about being in the mountains.

I have a deep love for the National Parks, especially Grand Teton National Park, one of my wife and I’s favorite places to be and explore. There’s nothing we’d love to do more than hit the road and travel to different parks to camp outside and spend time outdoors hiking.

Personal Life: I’m happily married for 5 years, and while I don’t have kids, our two dogs Seymour (Pit Mix) and Libby (Pitbull) keep me occupied with their constant need for snacks!

On Mental Health: I’m a firm believer that your mental health is important, coming from a deeply personal place, which is why I’m vocal about it being OK to share your feelings, and why TechRaptor supporting SafeInOurWorld is important to me.

On Games Media: I plan to talk about this a lot on my blog on this site, with a deep focus on taking care of your team, improving pay, and building a sustainable site.

On Business Technology: I believe that investing your business’ Cybersecurity is critical. If you’re a business owner who’s not sure what to do next, maybe I can help.
