I Get Business
Featured in the Houston Business Journal front page for my efforts growing my business at Scottrade in Sugar Land is one of my favorite accomplishments.
In my 13 years on Wall Street, I was everything from a derivatives trader to sales trainer and branch manager. However, my efforts growing the Sugar Land Scottrade branch from a one broker and two part time intern office to the third largest in the US is my crowning glory.
Common Sense Rocket Science
I was born and raised in Pasadena Tx, the son of a NASA rocket scientist. Really. I obtained my degree from the University of Houston – Clear Lake and began my lauded efforts in the brokerage industry. I longed to make a difference in the world and left Wall Street to become a teacher. I taught engineering at the middle school level. It was an exciting curriculum since unlike most classes I taught children how to think, not what to think.
My kids won awards for robotics and wind turbine design among many recognitions. I did enjoy helping shape children’s lives but the level of violence in public schools was to much too take due to a couple of literal life and death close calls.
As an active member of the WordPress community, I took a leadership role launching the first WordCamp San Antonio and was a featured speaker at WordCamp San Antonio 2017 giving a talk on project management.
I took my technical and marketing knowhow and dove into the world of WordPress development and marketing. Now, I can I can talk DNS and grep with the best of them but also talk about UX/UI like a Gauloises smoking art school grad. I’ve extensive first hand experience in WordPress design and development with a focus on the DIVI framework. I have also run social media campaigns for businesses using tools like HootSuite, email campaigns using Robly and Constant Contact, and extensive web hosting experience with both cPanel and custom solutions.

Unique – Everyone’s business or organization is unique. Your website needs to reflect your unique business. A cookie cutter approach gets cookie cutter results and you don’t need to waste the time and money. When I take on a partnership with a client, I have an interview with them to make sure I have a deep and abiding understand of your special needs.
More Than Advertising – Your website is more than just advertising. It let people know about your business on multiple levels. The look and feel of your website and social media sites needs to directly reflect your organization. This will help people understand the unique advantages of doing business with you.
Mobile Or Else – Close to 60% of searches are from mobile devices. If a consumer is out and tries to find you on their phone, can they? When is someone trying to find your business? Is it from home on their laptop or is it as they are driving around and try to find your location? Mobile first solves this problem by focusing on mobile user’s needs first.
You Get What You Pay For – This is very true for websites. I’m sorry to say that there are a lot of snake oil salesmen and people that don’t really understand how to do digital out there. You can usually tell these people since they’ll happily give you a quote or a fixed price before they get a deeper understanding of your needs. Also, these people aren’t concerned with building a long term relationship with you and don’t want to offer you hosting and ongoing technical and security support.
