What is your name?
Do you have a nickname that your friends and family use?
Jefe. Which means boss in Spanish - “El Jefe”. It’s pronounced like hef-eh.
What is your role in the company?
Owner and Founder.
What are the skills that you bring to your work?
I have a passion for technology and design and the Internet. I love working with customers to help them take their web design and online marketing to the next level. I find that many business owners want more out of their website but are intimidated and confused by all the routes to take. To sit down with them and establish a vision and make that happen is an amazing experience. With my background in Computer Science and technology, I have a good handle on the technical and business side of web design and Internet marketing.
What is your approach to work?
My preferred method is to get on the same page with the client – whether it’s a big website project or a simple maintenance task – and then set the dates and “to-dos” in place to get it done. I like to work in focused bursts of energy to push things across the table. The more efficiently and effectively I work, the more I can get done in a shorter amount of time.
What do you like to do for fun?
With my wife and four young children, there is never a dull moment outside of work. My children bring a lot of life and joy to my wife and I. We live near the beach and take advantage of it throughout the year – whether going to the beach together, surfing, bike rides, or an evening stroll, you’ll find us there. We like camping and the outdoors, including the crystal clear natural springs found throughout central Florida. Personally, I love to surf and jog. Those two things keep me sane and refreshed.
What is your favorite app or web-site right now?
I like the Zite newsreader. I can stay abreast of work related trends and fun stuff all in one place. Spotify is the most amazing music app too. As far as websites go, for work I love www.hubspot.com, www.bluewiremedia.com.au, and www.brightideas.co. Outside of work I like www.surfline.com and www.cnn.com to name a few.
