Minneapolis, MN

Director of Marketing

For over 18 years, I worked in corporate marketing, building some cool digital strategies, designing award winning software, developing new ideas, leading Agile teams, and solving countless problems along the way. It's easy to see I'm passionate about marketing. In my free time I've built brands and marketing strategies for new organizations to help get them off the ground. I've created a marketing strategy for my daughter's school and am working with the administration to implement the strategy. Not to loose touch with the technical skills of marketing, I design, build and maintain many websites and marketing analytics dashboards for non-profits.

The McKeevers by the Sauk River

I am lucky enough to be dad of two beautiful children, William and Eliana, and husband to a wonderful wife, Sara. Spending time with my family is my favorite pastime.

Sara and I have always enjoyed traveling, whether sneaking away for a weekend getaway, surprise anniversary trips, family vacations or travels abroad. Some of our memorable trips include a summertime excursion in Alaska, a two week tour of Ireland in which we traveled around the entire island, and a cultural experience in Colombia.

I also am fortunate to have a wonderful extended family. Holidays are always packed with food and good times.
