About Craig

I'm an experienced marketer currently building another marketing agency. I am available to mentor and will have project to hire work available in the very near future.

In 2004, I co-founded Red Bricks Media (RBM), a digital marketing agency with offices in San Francisco, New York City, and Hong Kong. In 2009 Red Bricks Media earned the ranking of #354 on Inc. Magazine's annual Inc. 500 listing by achieving 698% revenue growth from 2005 through 2008, with annual revenue of $8M and 75 employees. The agency also ranked #33 in the advertising and marketing category. I sold all my stock in 2013, and am now rebuilding a client roster focused on health care.

I've worked as Chief Strategist for many large brands, including Adobe, Hearst Publishing, Sony Pictures, and SanDisk.

I oversee strategy for digital marketing programs for search, display, social media, as well as traditional channels such as direct mail and print/radio. I taught marketing classes at AcademyX in San Francisco for several years.
