WEBSITE PROGRAMMING

Phil Lockwood

DIGITAL MARKETING STRATEGIST

Phil was working as a night security guard when Netscape kicked off the dotcom boom with its IPO. During one of his security rounds, he found a thick HTML book lying on a table. For the next 3 nights, he picked it up and worked through every page, resulting in the creation of his first website. Fast-forward through several years of more formal education with Macromedia/Adobe (to learn ColdFusion), Lotus (Notes/Domino), and Sun Microsystems (Java), and he had secured a role as a senior consultant for an international technology firm and established himself as one of the leading web marketing experts in Colorado. He's led campaigns for the Denver Broncos, Frontier Airlines, Vail Resorts, Atkins, Rubbermaid, Dish Network, Shell Oil, Molson Coors, Oxiclean, and hundreds of other clients across all industries. Today, he splits his time between digital strategy, conversion optimization, and growth hacking, always focused on generating maximum results with minimal cost.

Some people just know what they want to do from an early age. Brandon was one of those types. In high school, when his peers were vegging out in front of the TV watching teenage delinquent cartoons, he was actually creating animations and other short videos. This irrepressible passion led Brandon to art school, where he honed his skills and turned his love of designing and moving pictures into a tool of capitalism. Once out into the real world, he spent the next 15 years working at Starz Entertainment and a few boutique ad agencies. During all those years, he had the privilege to work on such well-known accounts as Audi, North Face, T-Mobile, Toyota, Copper Mountain and many others. His reel ranges from the beautifully esoteric to polished corporate pieces to the deliciously bizarre.  Brandon received his associate degree at the Art Institute of Colorado in 2003. In his spare time he loves pushing his knowledge of the newest animating and editing software. Yeah, the passion still burns brightly in this one.
