I help people and brands share their stories.

Authentic storytelling. I dig deep into your business or brand, intimately understand your story, and tell your story in a way that inspires sales based on what your brand "stands for."

When you use story effectively in your brand messaging, an authentic connection to the audience who benefits from your products and services is created. Story is simply information being shared in an authentic, and relatable manner.

When businesses and brands successfully set measurable marketing goals, promote their message, create irresistible content, and track their success, they thrive. It doesn't matter if you're a personal brand (athlete, entertainer, entrepreneur, etc), small business, or Fortune 500, this statement rings true. My job is to help businesses and brands create simple and effective marketing strategies that attract new, qualified leads.

I'm most known for:
1) Storytelling: What about your story will connect with your audience, and how to share it.
2)Networking: As a former baseball player, and years working in sports, I've developed personal relationships with over 1500 pro athletes, and hundreds of other entertainers and influencers.
3) Athlete Marketing: I help athletes and entertainers tell their stories, but I also help connect them with brands and opportunities that relate best to their story. Connecting an influencer that deeply relates to a brand, and a brand that deeply relates with the influencer has proven to draw successful results.

Beyond all of that, I also help with brand advising, creative strategy, marketing strategy, content creation, and filmmaking.

My goal is to help you set a marketing foundation that delivers a long-term ROI. I have over 10 years of experience doing marketing in many different industries such as sports, music, legal, tech, retail, real estate, e-commerce, business coaching, and more.

Using storytelling strategy, athlete marketing, filmmaking, and content creation experience, I'm devoted to capturing your audiences attention with authentic and compelling content. 


I'm a student of psychology, former baseball player, and entrepreneur. My mission is simple.

I aim to help people clearly communicate what they stand for.


"I cannot believe that the purpose of life is to be happy. I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. It is, above all to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all." - Leo Rosten

I'm the Founder of Athletes Brand and the Success at Success Podcast.


My story in sports begins as many kids stories do, chasing a dream of playing major league baseball. Over 10 years of battling spondylolisthesis (slipped and cracked vertebrate in my lower lumbar), and not seeing a future for myself in baseball anymore, I decided to close that chapter of my life to pursue a new passion in sports helping other athletes use their platforms for a greater purpose. Shortly thereafter, I found myself sitting shotgun with Danica Patrick at over 100 mph while pitching my new business, Athletes Brand, on national tv in GoDaddy's Super Bowl XLVII commercial. From there, I began the long journey to figure out who I was, and the importance of discovering what I stood for as an individual.


I grew up in a small town in Southern Oregon as the youngest of 3 boys, with two incredible parents. Family is everything to me, so I keep that in mind when working with clients as well. My work falls into the influencer & sports marketing and storytelling categories, and I take an unconventional approach that has helped over 1500 pro athletes. I build my clients brand based off of who they truly are, not what I believe will be the most sellable version. Authenticity, and what your unique values are create the foundation.


I specialize in professional athletes and high performers in entertainment and business. However, my clients range from A-list celebrities to local entrepreneurs, because everybody has something that they stand for that makes them unique, and of significant value to the world.


But why do I focus so heavily on athletes and sports? To me, it's more than just sports being my passion and expertise. I believe athletes and sports can truly change the world.

“Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair.” - Nelson Mandela
