Not Your Typical Digital Marketer

Hi there,

While many digital marketers stay with the solutions and platforms that they are familiar and comfortable with, I choose to find innovative approaches to challenges using tools and solutions that truly differentiate myself and my clients in the marketplace. "Difficult takes a day. Impossible takes a week"-Franklin D. Rivera II

In every company, differentiation is never more important that it is in times of trouble, and that's the time when everyone tends to go to the well and equalize rather than differentiate-Jack Welch
