VP of Data Engineering
George is a nerd. – A title a lifetime in the making, it’s a moniker he welcomes.
Promptly after earning his accounting degree from the University of Connecticut, George quickly found a different passion; programming. A self-taught web developer with 25 years of experience, George remembers when being a success online involved having a “killer mascot” (sock puppets? really?).
George joined Smart 1 Marketing in November 2016 after running his own web agency in Connecticut since 2002. George is tasked with “connecting the dots” for the Smart 1’s and our clients, distilling down the mountains of data at our fingertips into functional, usable tools.
George lives in Connecticut with his wife Kelly and their 3 children. He is kept busy coaching little league, cooking, tending to his organic garden, and raising/browbeating the next generation of coders.
