He works with digital advertising agencies and strategizes in areas such as AdWords account optimization, new business proposals, business reviews, marketing, and performance benchmarking.

Drew is an expert at growing companies large and small through paid digital marketing. He loves testing new paid platforms and continually strives to improve growth, efficiency and conversion. Drew has worked with a number of startups, agencies, and SMBs over the last 12 years, helping companies like MEC, Top Hat, Shutterstock and a number of local businesses grow 300 to 1000% with intelligent PPC.
Doug is a self made digital man. In 2001 he decided to drop out of a college digital program because it was years behind the industry. He believes that creativity and relentless drive for results is the only way to win on the web. As digital marketers we need to learn to push the boundaries of these platforms everyday, because as we all know the internet is still the wild west and only the individuals that constantly adapt and create unique strategies will win.
