From the Gulf to the Tundra, A Digital Marketer’s Story

About a decade ago, long before I was helping clients with digital marketing in Minneapolis, I sat on a boat in the Gulf of Mexico during some down time from work and began teaching myself HTML and CSS with the aid of a wonderful book from SitePoint. I worked through the exercises, stumbled through my first website, and felt very satisfied with the outcome. I felt accomplished. Thus, began the passion that brought me to where I am today.

The seeds of that passion were in me before that, though. You might even say they were native to me. Being innately curious and having a tendency towards tenacity when solving problems, I was drawn to technology at a very young age. Though we didn’t have one in my house as a child, I would jump at the chance to be on a computer. I was completely fascinated with them. Back then, the only thing I knew how to do was open Paint and scribble around, but even that was mesmerizing for me.

Not exactly a ‘Flux Capacitor”

compaq minitower, my first digital marketing machineWhen we got our first computer, I was a junior in high school. It was a Compaq with Mini-Tower, Windows 98, and a blazing fast 56k kbps dial-up connection. Ahh, those were the days! That computer gave me my first taste of the web, and like most of the rest of my generation, I quickly learned to navigate the world of the internet.

Back to the future, and my web development skills have gotten better. However, I really have a passion and talent for working with my clients to uncover the core of their business need, and then developing a solution around that need. Whether their need requires a creative implementation of WordPress, custom software, or a well-rounded digital marketing strategy, I know how to listen, and in due time, ask the right questions in order to bring to light what their true needs are.

This is what we do here at Nativ3. We listen. We ask questions. We listen some more. Then, we put our heads together to come up with the right solution. We love technology and the potential it has to change lives, business, and the world. We feel great satisfaction in bringing ideas to life!
