Align2Compte, LLC Align2Compte, LLC
Marketing/PR/Content creation


My specialty is helping small and medium-sized businesses with their marketing and advertising messaging strategies. I am also a freelance writer covering consumer behavior, business-to-business trends, marketing tactics, and sales.

I have had a great career in the newspaper media industry in 37 U.S. markets and tours at Trulia (a Zillow company) and The News, Automotive, and Real Estate categories taught me how to thrive in competitive business environments.

I co-founded with a business partner a marketing agency called Align2Compete in 2019, and we are in our 5th year of business. Our agency turns strangers into customers for emerging businesses and for those that want to get the word out about new programs, events, and services they provide.

For content strategy (blog articles ,and Social posts) anyone, using A.I. can generate an article on "Fly Fishing in the Canadian Rockies" in 2 seconds. Easy-peasy, right? But A.I. is just another tool; Do I use it? Absolutely. You can get new story outlines and can save time researching a piece and structuring a communication. I am a ghostwriter that presents a human nuance to topics with proper research citations and is plagiarism-free.You can tell it was not written by a bot.

I have lived in metro Denver for a long time. Some of my passions are having a sense of humor, hanging out with my wife at home or traveling, and playing a great golf course. 

I am a Minnesotan at heart. I grew up there and graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Economics from the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities. People from that part of the world are generally hard-working and very earnest about things. I would say that having grown up in this environment has rubbed off on me.
