I have been with the awesome team at TechLink Solutions now for almost a year. Working with everyone has been an absolute joy. We all have so much talent to contribute. And it’s no secret that I wear a few hats around here myself. From building and revamping websites to optimizing pages with SEO and PPC campaigns, each day is usually eventful and busy.

My family includes my lovely wife, Karen, and our 3 kids. In my spare time I enjoy going to the beach, watching movies, and actually being in them. Biggest accomplishment: I was in Avengers Endgame with Chris Evans and Robert Downy Jr.
