Beat the often path.
The old models are broken. Go to school... Get a job... Work your way up the ladder... These things no longer guarantee success or happiness (did they ever?). I seek out people who found success on their own terms, and I help clients find their unique path in business and in life.

I'm an Ethical Marketer.
I believe that it's good to be weird and that we should celebrate living outside the box. I think marketers and storytellers have a responsibility to choose which stories are worth amplifying. That's why I help companies and people who deserve extra attention share their stories.
I've taught over 20,000 people on Udemy how to improve their lives using technology. My courses are best-sellers and/or the highest rated in their category. I love connecting with people from around the world.
The vast majority of value I provide is and always will be free. I believe in the democratization of information on the internet, and giving freely is my default state. I share stories that make the world better.
In 2016 I started my digital marketing agency, Aloa LLC, where I help ethical businesses and non-profits grow digitally. I've taken a current client from low 7 figures to 8 figures in just a few years.
I offer one-on-one or small group sessions virtually via Zoom. In this setting, I can give you personalized feedback. I'm also a keynote speaker for hire and do in-company training on a variety of topics related to digital marketing and storytelling in the modern age.*
(*sense of humor included at no extra charge.)
I have always had a passion for cutting-edge technology, knowledge, and creative expression.
At the age of 11, I started programming Z80 assembly language on my TI-83 calculator while listening to electronic music religiously, watching The Simpsons, and speed-solving Rubik’s Cubes (personal best avg. of 15.75 seconds!). I became a vegan 10+ years ago and now eat a mostly (but not totally) plant-based diet. In short, I've never fit in. I seek out and celebrate people who have succeeded in highly unusual ways and who care about our planet.
My work is at the intersection of philosophy, humor, business, and technology.
