How I Started My Career

As I grew up I found I had a knack for all things technical – computers, programming, gadgets, and technology.

I decided to go to college for Computer Science and while attending I had a family friend who gave me my first “career” job – in IT.  I knew it was a chance to make a statement as many companies champion “experience necessary” and I was knowledgeable, but had no experience on my resume.  So, I poured myself into learning as much as I could and applying myself.  This was 1995, and the Internet was growing in popularity.

While in the IT department I took on a new challenge – web development – in the form of an Intranet. Developing the Intranet and the experience gained, I was recruited internally to a growing web team and flexed my programming background with the blossoming Internet.

I was later recruited by the founders of a regional online news site for north Georgia.  After 1 year in development, 13 separate news agencies were entering news online via a custom programmed administration panel and aggregating news for site visitors.

In 2000, I became a founder of Red Clay Interactive. My diverse background of programming and IT with new skills including marketing, project management, analytics, and business intelligence – and how it all ties together – has allowed me to help companies large and small.

I started Venn Marketing in 2017 when I saw a need to help companies grow their business with internet marketing.

This Site’s Purpose

I personally believe that people who are passionate about their career and direction will succeed – they sometimes need a helping hand along the way, just as I did. I enjoy helping others learn throughout their career.

I find that I enjoy teaching and sharing what I’ve learned, as well as collaborating and discussing technology and the Internet.  I want to give back some of the knowledge that I’ve attained and acquired, and hopefully connect with others that share the same passion for learning and growing.

I hope you find this site to be useful.
