Rod began working in digital marketing by doing. His history in web development provided the foundation for learning the technical aspects of SEO, and the combination of his math/statistics and writing background provided the basic skills for excelling at PPC.

As Pilot has grown, Rod has moved from being hands-on to explaining how digital marketing can impact potential clients’ businesses.
