I have more than 10+ years in strategic marketing, and have helped more than 210 companies to grow their business.

Outside of my marketing career, I enjoy traveling (as seen by this picture of me atop Mount Roy in New Zealand), and sharing my story of ingenuity, faith, and determination in a compelling way that inspires audiences of all ages to take action as a motivational speaker.

About Me

Analytics nerd. Multipotentialite. Adventurer. Speaker.

Hey there, Godson here. I’m your not-so-typical, first-generation professional with a passion for analytics and consumer buying habits.

Most marketers are make their mark getting their MBA’s, but I got my start a little differently…

I stumbled into marketing originally as a 4.0 GPA Physician Assistant student with no money to pay for textbooks. One day, I had the idea to make extra money by reselling collectible footwear & delivering them door-to-door locally.

Instead of allowing me to finally pay for my organic chemistry textbooks, that little “side hustle” grew into $1-million in revenue business, an e-commerce marketplace, a storefront location in one the most expensive counties in the US, and customers in 30+ countries including Grammy-nominated artists — all while still living in my mom’s basement.

Fast forward to today: I’ve taken my talents to leading marketing departments so companies can meet their business goals through awareness, engagement, and conversion campaigns.

My Experience

VC-backed startups. DTC brands. E-Commerce companies. Agencies. Nonprofits. I’ve done it all.

Thanks to my unconventional career path, I’ve had the fortune of being able to work with brands and businesses of all different shapes and sizes.

That vast experience across different verticals makes me well-positioned to tackle challenging problems using outside-the-box methodologies, regardless of how much previous familiarity I have in a particular space.

If you want conventional results, hire conventional.

But if you want impactful, lasting returns on your investment, hire me.
