Local SEO Analyst & Account Manager
Dave has been in the digital space for over 15 years now, dating back to high school, where he created his first website for a robotics class. As a hobby in college and shortly thereafter, he created and maintained various sports forums and blogs, before moving on to a professional role for an SEO agency. Starting out as an Analyst doing reporting and link building, Dave worked his way up to the Senior SEO Specialist role, where he worked on the technical SEO for the agency’s corporate sites.
In May of 2019, Dave took his talents and passion for local SEO to Canada, and joined the Sterling Sky team. (Joy claims this to be her best hire of all-time) Joy’s Note: Dave wrote this, not me.
Dave is an active member in the ‘SEO Twitter’ community, talking all things technical and local SEO. He is also a Google Local Guide and Google Trusted Tester, so his finger is always on the pulse of breaking news and strategies in the industry.
When he’s not working, Dave enjoys spending time with the fam, hiking, playing hoops (has a sick jump shot), and collecting vintage sports memorabilia.
