Owner & CEO

” People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care” “

– Theodore Roosevelt

Q: How did you come to Digital Storyteller?

A: I was curious about Amanda’s processes and how she was serving her clients so in October of 2019 I attended one of her Brand Storytelling Sessions  – the reaction from the C suite in the room was enough for me to know that Digital Storyteller had a ton of potential. At the time I was the VP of Sales for Coastal Payroll making good money managing a team of great salespeople, but I’d always wanted to own a company and be a CEO.  Amanda and I communicate so well and have deep respect for each other so we decided to scale the company together, bringing my experience in sales to her experience in marketing. I left my position at Coastal on April 1st at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic to venture out on this amazing journey.  Every day is an opportunity to be better & learn more #whenyourpartnersyourpartner.

Q: What’s one thing most people don’t know about your education or upbringing?

A: I grew up in Troon, Scotland where there are more golf balls than people (by a LOT).  My mates and I would hit balls into the ocean all day on weekends, drink cider on the golf course and generally spend every waking moment with a golf club in our hands.  So, I became a professional golfer.  After a less than stellar golf playing career and a serious bout of clinical depression, I made some really big life choices and came to America where I helped build a non profit helping homeless people get back on their feet through running.  I’ve completed 2 ironman races (one ultra ironman in Scotland), multiple half ironmans and a marathon.

Q: What are your top 3 podcasts/ books?

A: Books – The E Myth, Traction  Podcast –  How I Build This with Guy Raz

Q: If you were to look back from the age of 80 and tell yourself anything what would it be?

A: Be patient, smile, give your best every day, work in as much as out and love unconditionally.
