Digital Marketing, Analytics, & Conversion Optimization

Tracking behavior and gathering data is easy. Interpreting that data is hard. Anyone can manage tracking scripts, implement granular event handlers, and establish attribution models. My job is to translate those into actionable insights, strategic recommendations, and brilliant ideas.
