Co-Founder - Relish Studio
Stu started his marketing career as a copywriter and ad man. But one day, when his graphic designer colleague didn’t show up for work, he quickly evolved into a designer. Since then, he’s performed virtually every role in the digital marketing production lifecycle – from strategy and concepting, to design and development, to QA/QC and everything in between. Along the way he realized that he gets the greatest joy from helping others achieve their goals. Today, he manages purposeful, conversion-focused digital marketing strategy, along with doing ridiculous things outdoors. When he’s not helping entrepreneurs and executive-level professionals, he can be found traipsing around the woods near the cabin in which I have lived with my wife and menagerie of pets since 1993.
