Born and raised in Lafayette California, the bay area will always be home to me. I graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2007 with a BA in Economics with a quantitative emphasis. The first 8 years of my career were spent working in Financial Services working directly with Financial Advisors and their clients. I was a Senior Relationship Manager for a broker dealer in San Diego where I was the main service contact for a RIA (Registered Investment Advisor) with over $2 Billion under management. I still have active FINRA Series 7 & 63 licenses.
Financial services was definitely challenging and rewarding in it’s own way. I always wanted to run my own business. I started following people like Gary Vaynerchuk, Neil Patel & Alex Becker. I realized that independent financial advisors and financial planners were lagging behind in modern digital marketing techniques and that it was somewhat of an untapped market. So I went all in on learning SEO and other forms of marketing. I was an in a unique position because of my experience in financial services and understanding the FINRA regulations regarding retail communications to the public.
So I started Social Rank Media Group to become the leader in Financial Advisor SEO & Digital Marketing.
Born across the pond, but raised in sunny San Diego, California. I graduated from the University of San Diego with a BA in Marketing & Communications. Before I went to USD, I attended the Berklee College of Music on a vocal scholarship. Music is a true passion of mine and I still love to sing whenever I get the chance. I also speak fluent Mandarin and I have been to China multiple times. I even recorded a few songs in Mandarin while I was there.
My main expertise at Social Rank Media Group is Social Media Marketing, but E-commerce consulting has a special place in my heart as well. One could say I’m a Facebook Ad guru. I pride myself in outworking the competition as I’ve been known to work round the clock.
