5.25 Floppy Disk, anyone?

I am at the age where I can just remember life before the internet. My first personal, non-Atari, computer was an 8086 (XT). I would spend evenings formatting 5.25 floppy disks for my dad and his computer business. Formatting these plastic squares was a very important job, according to my dad.  I loved executing commands in DOS. Ever since I fell in love with MS-DOS and Windows 3.0 in the early '90s,  I have have been earning a living helping businesses integrate digital operating principles, philosophies, and practices into their business to help modernize their organization, deepen their competitive advantage, and drive more business results.

What Others Have Said About Working With Me

Kevin is a top-notch digital strategist with a great knack for explaining digital strategy to everyone from the C-Suite to the intern. He's equally comfortable one-on-one or presenting to a crowd. He has wide-ranging experience from nonprofits to small businesses to international corporations and brands. I particularly valued Kevin's emphasis on results, something we refer to as conversion rate optimization, and the data-driven orientation that comes with that. His reporting, analytics and data visualization skills are superb. Kevin would be a great addition to any marketing team. 

Doug Lacombe, President, Communicatto

I had the opportunity to work closely with Kevin when I was at the Calgary Zoo and he was with Communicatto. Besides joy, humour and a lot of fun, Kevin, brought an acute strategic mind to the variety of projects that we worked on together. He was always thinking bigger and broader, with an immense amount of data to back up his ideas. Kevin was also a great collaborator as he seamlessly brought together the Comms and Marketing teams and helped to develop an integrated cross-functional team. I would certainly recommend Kevin to anyone seeking a thoughtful and creative digital mind and would jump at the chance to work with him again.
