Service Description

My ideal project would combine working with Google Analytics and Google AdWords together to send your ROI metrics soaring into the stratosphere.
That said, I do have 12+ years of experience working in all aspects of online marketing for high level advertising agencies, so if the work includes other web development components, I'll be good to go.

I have very high level JavaScript skills, which allow me to figure out even the most insanely complicated of Google Analytics implementations.

Working in agencies has taught me a lot, including:

- Deadlines must be met, whether that allows for sleep or not
- Everything is possible, it's just a matter of how hard things are to figure out
