If you’re here for my ”digital life”–a life currently centered around branding & digital media–go to:
If you’re looking for “my story” thus far, it is abbreviated below and continues to change as I fight my dragons.
I’m a marketing man. I market water at Lotic LLC and market beer at Big Sky Brewing Company. I also market my wife, Linsey Corbin. I’ve even thought about marketing my dog, but instead just take her fly fishing—which I also market. Marketing puts me to bed at night, and marketing wakes me up in the morning.
My latest quest is to better understand the role of STORY in the world of digital media.
