Marketing in San Francisco, California
Hi, I'm Jeff. I love San Francisco and I love Michigan. Seems like an odd pair, but actually, it makes sense. After years of enjoying the simple things in life, like football, lasagna, and weekend trips to the mall, I moved out to California to speed things up a bit. It turns out the Bay Area has the best of everything! While it feels more and more like home here every year, I can't hide the Michigan in me... not that I'd want to anyway.
I'm a sports guy to the core - soccer, football, basketball, inner tube water polo - it doesn't matter! The day I realized I'd go pro in something other than sports was sobering, but I still enjoy following my passion as a fan. There's nothing like waking up at the crack of dawn on a Fall Saturday morning to watch my Michigan Wolverines play!
Beyond sports, I try to stay versatile and have new experiences whenever possible. Right now I'm into coffee and craft beer. I'm the guy that crinkles his nose when offered a Starbucks or Budweiser, and I hate myself for it! If you want to know what I like, feel free to follow me on Untappd.
Then, there is of course work. I'm passionate about technology (big surprise in SF, I know), but I think my "why" is a bit different. Growing up in the Midwest, I saw how hard it can be for things in motion to stop and change direction. But technology is coming no matter how inconvenient it is for some, and I make it my mission as a product marketer to help the world understand it as a solution and not a problem. That's why I've spent the majority of my career working on products that make people more productive.
If you'd like to talk, I'd love to hear from you!
