I started Benevolent Tech because I love working with and helping small businesses, especially those who foster community. Coming from a technical background, I found my interests and skills best align with small businesses in online communications.
Towards that end, I've focused my entire career on online marketing and website technologies. I leverage my experience and passion to hand-pick and implement technologies which are beautiful inside and out, affordable, easy to use, and boost sales. Think of us as Red Bull for your business.
Founded. Trying to learn faster, I quit my full-time job and started Benevolent Tech as a freelancing vessel to work and learn from multiple web agencies concurrently. By doing so, I was able to better learn what worked and didn’t work with website technologies and project management. I also became a father!
Teaming up. 2016 was a major shift for me — from project execution to project leadership. Sure, I’ve been doing project leadership for years, but leadership efforts grew larger than execution efforts in 2016. This shift was both organic and intentional, working towards full business leadership.
Growth. Armed with a tremendous amount of learnings from 2016, I focused on growth for 2017. I reduced my roles in project execution to focus on project leadership, marketing, sales, hiring, and team culture. The results were fantastic — triple-digit growth in all categories. Also, we moved to Baltimore!
