Let’s Grow Together

Join me on the journey and receive updates weekly.


Combining Art + Business.

I am a creative, root level, win-win focused digital solutionist. As a classically trained Actor with an MFA and years of practical experience as a marketing professional, I am able to use the principals of storytelling with a deep listening level of empathy to create meaningful and engaging solutions. 

I LOVE the fact that I do not have all of the answers. I would rather “experience” something that simply know the answer. My search is about the JOY of experiencing and sharing all that life has to offer. Through this exploration I have picked up the following skills:

My (Soft) Skills & Proficiencies:
-Problem definition/solving, Public Speaking/Presentations, Individual/Ensemble building, Excellent verbal/written communication, systems-level thinking/analysis.

My (Hard) Skills & Proficiencies 
-SEO, Marketing Funnel strategy & implementation, Front-End Web Development (JS/CSS/HTML), Google Analytics, Digital Project Management, Brand Strategy.

Kind Words About My Work

 Rufus  is a passionate and focused worker who isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty and do something outside of his comfort zone. If he doesn’t know how to do something, he will dive into figuring it out. He’s as equally skilled as he is thoughtful, and goes out of his way to accommodate client needs and do the best job he can.
