I recently worked as President for DCMN, Inc., a TV & Digital marketing agency headquartered in Berlin, Germany with offices in San Francisco, New York, London, Paris, and Bangalore. During my years as President we successfully achieved rank among Inc. 5000 Europe's Fastest-Growing Companies and Financial Times 1000 Europes Fastest Growing Companies. I've had the honor of living & working abroad for many years for various innovative global startups, helping them achieve aggressive Sales and Growth. I, myself, am a serial entrepreneur having started 2 companies of my own in the past, selling my first company at the age of 25 to a California based company, Adconion Media Group, which was later sold to Amobee. I've recently moved back to my home state of Minnesota, accepting the role as Chapter Director for Startup Grind, St. Paul and also VP of Business Development for a London based media agency, with offices in London, NYC, LA, Atlanta and Minneapolis called The Specialist Works. I aspire to be an avid voice for local startups and innovators in the area, engaging, connecting and sharing our intriguing stories of success, challenges and sometimes failures. I plan to help innovative startups flourish both nationally and globally, conveying our Mid-Western values, encouraging growth and igniting new ideas of innovation so that the global tech scene knows that we are the true "Vikings of the Midwest" #VikingStartups!
