Nice to meet you, I’m Ralph
What’s my story?
I am a Portland-based digital marketer and webmaster who specializes in SEO. I regularly audit and provide clients with plans of action to maximize their presence on search engines and increase their exposure to potential clients.
When possible, I also build websites from the ground up to ensure that they have the proper foundations to perform and are as optimized as possible.
That being said…
I just like giving a hand
In all seriousness, there’s a lot to be overwhelmed by in the digital age.
Unwieldy content management systems (WordPress). Mercurial rules and regulations. Rampant AI abuse. John Mueller’s recent tweets.
It’s a lot to take and sometimes even more to handle.
Honestly, it’s really nice to have someone in the knowhow, who not only stays up-to-date with internet trends but regularly works in the online world.
Someone like me, that is.
I’m here to help make the online world a safer and less intimidating place. Not everyone needs to be a master coder or e-commerce shark to succeed in the digital age, but it pays to have someone who knows a thing or two about the internet close by.
Let me help you make the web a better place.
Frequently Asked Questions
My first ever remote gig was at a very large travel website. While there, the owner of the site drilled into my head mostly the importance of SEO. This was the foundation of my online skills.
Quickly, I learned that there was more to succeeding in the online world than SEO (as important as it is). I took it upon myself to learn as much as possible about everything digital, from SEM to webdev to e-commerce to spreadsheet hacking. I am still actively rounding out my skillset and will continue to do so.
Having lived in Italy for 4 years, I am conversational in Italian.
I have also dabbled in Portuguese and am currently learning Spanish.
As a native of the Pacific Northwest, I am an avid outdoorsman. My favorite ways of getting outside are by surfing (yes, in frigid temps) and by climbing (alpine, not cragging).
I will often carry around my trusty Fujifilm camera with me and many of the photos on this website are from myself.

Although I have been working almost entirely remotely for the past few years, I prefer the hybrid workplace. There’s just no simulating water cooler talk and I find that real synergy only happens when a physical space is shared. I am not against commuting into an office a few times a week if it means I get to work together with some stellar people.
Fifty, the last one being Senegal in Spring 2022.
Of those fifty countries, I have worked in a dozen and lived in four.
The top countries I would like to visit in the future include El Salvador, Sri Lanka, Japan, Algeria, and Peru.
