Jeff's diverse and wide-ranging skills, knowledge, and experience in design and development have made him an invaluable creative and technical resource. Over the last decade, Jeff built a successful track record in website design and rich media for multiple industries, putting him in position to lead the development of online sales & marketing solutions for the golf industry.
Jeff graduated magna cum laude from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with a major in Art & Design. He jump-started his career by creating his own design firm in 1998. The success of JR Design introduced him to many clients, including Reed Thompson, the founder of Youth Sports Network (YSN). Reed hired Jeff to lead the creation of this online community for youth sports nationwide. This led to a string of cooperative successes that continues today. MyTeam.com acquired YSN and became the Active Network. Jeff and Reed then collaborated to start the web marketing company Elevation, Inc.
After several years of providing rich media for a diverse cross-section of industries, Elevation started work with hookedongolf.com, an online portal for golfers. The company then made the strategic decision to focus exclusively on the golf industry, offering online sales & marketing for golf courses. This was the genesis of TapIn.
An avid golfer and a skilled professional photographer, Jeff built an extensive golf course portfolio over the years. Notable golf clients include Poppy Hills Golf Course, Cinnabar Hills, and the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
Jeff and his wife Jeffie, a labor & delivery nurse, are the parents of two young children.
