Phil started working on the Web before it was cool. He started as a web developer in 1996 and spent the bubble days gaining experience as a system administrator and trainer. Many hats later, he brings broad experience to all digital projects, where his super powers include translating über-geek jabber to mortals and explaining marketing-speak in binary code.
Phil led the post-merger team that moved news sites from Knight-Ridder's content management system to McClatchy Interactive's. He eventually found his true passion as a search optimizer and social media evangelist. When he's not cheering for the Red Sox, Phil organizes the country's most successful SEO meetup and is the founder of the Raleigh New Media Leaders events.
Phil is currently the Director of SEO at Virante in Morrisville, NC.
