He did really well in math and English alike so after initially trying out a music major in college, and a brief stint as a physics major, he finally settled on Economics because of the broad scope of being both quantitative and qualitative. This translated really well into SEM because it also uses both sides of the brain, being a creative and rigidly analytical profession.

He started his search career with BrokersWeb in 2011, and stayed with the team through the merger with Vantage Media and continuing on before leaving in late 2014. at HealthCare.com, Chris manages paid media acquisition campaigns.

Chris holds a B.S. in Economics from Florida International University and is certified in Google Analytics, Adwords, & Bing. Years of Experience with Contextual marketing platforms.
