Bald Mountain Press (BMP) California / Hawaii
I have clients from Hawaii to Maine who depend on search engines to generate customers. I make sure they get higher search engine ranks than most, if not all, of their competition for the keywords and phrases we carefully choose and integrate into their internet brand. As internet marketing has grown into a major industry, I have expanded into every realm a small business needs to successfully market their services or products in today's world, including blogs, web 2.0, social media, and social bookmarking.

I won the Felix Christopher McCain award for poetry in 1985, the first underclassman to win the $100 prize ever. In my senior year I was an assistant to the President of the University of Arkansas. I was chosen to write reports for then University President Ray Thornton (now State Supreme Court Associate Justice, Arkansas).

I researched what worked and did not, interviewed teachers, students, and administrators, and reported directly to Mr. Thornton.
