Doug is the co-founder and principal member of Vertical Interactive, LLC.
He started his first company, Studio Blue Design,in 2000. It was a company that, at the time, offered digital recording and simple web design. As all things do, SBD evolved leaving the recording behind and branching out into more advanced web development, web applications and online marketing.
During this growth period, Doug fortuitously connected with Kirk Snedeker. Kirk and Doug, together, developed the concept of Vertical Interactive and the vision of what it was to become. Over 3 years in the making, Vertical Interactive, LLC is the culmination of countless hours of work and development.
Doug's first career was as a professional saxophonist. This era found Doug taking up residence in both central Pennsylvania and subsequently Nashville, TN for a 9 year stint.
