About Adam:
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!

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.

Daphne Sidor

Senior Editor
Daphne Sidor
About Daphne:
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.)

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.

Let's Get Personal:
When he's not "video-ing", Ryan thoroughly enjoys writing music, golfing, socializing with friends, traveling and especially watching the Vikings take it to the Packers. As an avid sports enthusiast, and when he is free to do so, Ryan can't get enough of watching his favorite sports played at their highest level. Music is also at the core of who Ryan is. Creating music and discovering new artists fills most of his remaining "free" time.

About Jeff:
Jeff is the voice behind many of Leadpages' 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.

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.
