"JD was instrumental in crafting creative strategies for launching new products and revenue-driving promotions. His expertise in DTC and retail channels and his keen understanding of different market dynamics, needs, and goals were great assets to our teams.

“JD has a unique combination of both analytical and creative skills, with the ability to think holistically about the business without losing focus on tactical execution. He has a consumer-first mindset, whether diving into shopper data, building a creative campaign, or guiding product innovation. He has a great understanding of consumers, competitors, the category and our own brand, and was able to deliver insights that guided our marketing both strategically and creatively. Not to mention he’s easy and fun to work with.”

– Katie Cline, former supervisor

VP Marketing, Bubbies Ice Cream

"JD is a compassionate leader who truly cares about his team and helping them to grow and develop both creatively and as people. He really pushed the brand team at Four Sigmatic to think more creatively at problems to solve, push the social media and influencer strategies, write better briefs, and think audience-first always.


He did not live in the same state as any of his team, but it still felt like we all had a strong personal connection. Additionally, he is a great role model in balancing both work and life. Highly recommend working with (or for!) JD!"
