Quote:
"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Adam is an Account Executive on the enterprise sales team. He works with marketing departments at companies to help them understand the power of increasing conversion rates and teach them how we help them to deploy and iterate faster then ever. Before Adam came to LeadPages he had his own "one man" digital marketing agency before moving to a local agency, all while using LeadPages, and rooting on the company, before ultimately joining the team!

What Makes Him Tick:
Always getting better. Adam feels that while he may not be the best today, he's better then he was yesterday and he will be better tomorrow. Adam has a huge passion for the digital marketing industry and loves helping customers dig in to the ways that our software can help grow their business.

Let's Get Personal:
If Adam is not moving forward he is moving backward! He has a constant drive to learn and create new things, and often finds himself going down a rabbit hole of new information and getting lost in ideas. Exploring new and emerging technologies and learning about how they will improve or change our way of life in the future is a common past time of his. Adam also loves skiing, both in the summer and winter, and enjoys escaping to a beach as much as time and funds allow.

Copywriter

Daphne Sidor

Copywriter
Daphne Sidor
Daphne has spent the past half-decade creating engaging, informative, and sometimes funny content for the web - stuff that's inspired as much by human curiosity as by sales goals and search metrics. She has a master's degree in library and information science, but got happily waylaid by writing for tech startups before she could get behind the reference desk. (Plus, she probably has too many overdue fines to be a totally respectable librarian.)

What Makes Her Tick:
The drive to stir readers' interest, intelligence, and capacity for delight.

Let's Get Personal:
Daphne is also a musician, book critic, novice gardener, year-round cyclist, dog appreciator, and urbanite who loves to get a little lost in the wild.

Jeff Wenberg

Head Product Educator
Jeff Wenberg
Jeff is the voice behind many of LeadPages's videos and tutorials. Drawing on his creative background as a songwriter and musician, Jeff aims to create videos and content that are both dynamic and engaging while also telling a story in a short and sweet package. His perfectionism, while sometimes a curse, drives him to chip away at the content until he can discover the most clear and concise way to put information out there. He loves what he gets to do every day, and it really shows in all of his projects.

What Makes Him Tick:
With all kinds of ideas floating in his head, implementing, being creative and getting them out of there is a necessity.

Let's Get Personal:
When Jeff isn't creating videos, he loves to write, record, and perform music with his band. He also loves embarking on new adventures that bring new experiences. Life's different experiences are what it's all about. Getting married, having 3 crazy cats, and awesome family and friends help keep the new adventures coming.
