What I Love About Chicago

I enjoy the hustle and bustle of this city. I love that there are so many unique people that contribute all types of different things. Chicago is a melting pot filled with interesting characters. Also, you have to admit that we have some of the best food on planet Earth.

I strive to help my clients identify and execute on SEO opportunities that help them accomplish their unique business goals. I act as an extension of their marketing team and a trusted partner to help steer their vision toward success.

How I Spend My Free Time

Mostly any nerdy hobby that involves strategy, storytelling, and teamwork. Examples include professional wrestling, video games, board games like Dungeons and Dragons, and of course football! Oh and let’s not forget, hanging out with my adopted pup named General Beauregard Henri Helwich-Vail, The Terror of West Avondale. Beau for short.
