The Smash Digital team is made up of 13 SEO experts who have 50+ years of combined experience in the SEO world.

We have created quite the reputation for ourselves by thinking outside of the box when it comes to SEO. We generally don’t accept the status quo without supporting evidence. In fact, we believe that half of popular, accepted SEO knowledge is wrong, full of propaganda, and actually hurts webmasters.

Smash Digital tests, reinvents, and creates systems to drive targeted visitors to your site for the long-haul.

Put simply, Smash Digital is all about doing what works. (and not taking ourselves too seriously)

We can back up everything we say. Founder Travis Jamison owns a portfolio of successful businesses, all of which use SEO as their main traffic source. We know what it takes to get results and offer the same exact systems for our clients.

Travis Jamison

Travis is the founder of a dozen companies, with 2 meaningful exits, with most built using SEO. He's writing about this himself in third person, and refuses to have a professional head-shot (hence the avatars).
Nick Kanter


Director of Operations
Relentlessly focused on SEO and analyzing the search results. Operations connoisseur. Never seen a mountain he didn’t want to hike.
Tim Backes


Director of Client Services
Proud SEO nerd that wants you to love it as much he does. BJJ white belt now and for the foreseeable future. Amateur travel hacker that never has enough airline miles.
Karl Kangur


Director of Marketing
Karl has over 10 years of digital marketing experience. He has built (and sold) several companies, ranging from affiliate websites to e-commerce stores. His core expertise lies in SEO, content, and business strategy.


Outreach Manager
SEO princess, first of her name, combines scientific data and artistic intuition in her strategies. Small, but will fight for your rankings. Recreational ballet dancer and newbie piano player driven by enormous enthusiasm.


Project Manager
SEO prodigy and psychology major blessed with some enviable organizational and management skills (one big, nerdy perfectionist who often gets asked if she is a human-like robot). Recreational ballet dancer and fitness devotee constantly striving for more movement.


Outreach Specialist
Avid SEO specialist and ecommerce enthusiast. Loves playing basketball, but due to a recent injury has been forced to get his fix by reading about the sport and commenting on message boards.
Sean Markey


Marketing Content Writer
Obsessive consumer of SEO news and strategies, writes the This Week in SEO column. Loves playing drums and writing fiction. Bets you he can throw a football over them mountains.
Drea Gombos


Lead Content Writer
Has been writing ever since she could properly hold pen and paper. A compulsive reader, fantasy and horror fan: but will read almost anything that comes with a solid recommendation. Listens to a lot of jazz, walks a lot of miles on the weekends, and can usually be roped in to discuss anything content marketing-related.


Content Writer
An enthusiastic writer, still enchanted by the power of words. Happy to roll up her sleeves for anything content-related. Learned in her 20's that she's not clumsy after all, and couldn't stop moving ever since. Horseback riding is her latest obsession. 


Outreach Specialist
Experienced outreach professional, but eager to learn new tricks. In love with languages, science fiction, anime, and finding new bands. Is regularly planning new adventures - next on the list are archery lessons.


Content Writer
Fell in love with writing once she realized it could be used as an excuse to read and do research. Obsessed with ballet, theater, and travel - especially if they're combined. Fueled by coffee and chocolate, but trying to cut back on both.
Ricardo Pina


Special Projects
Started from the bottom now he's here (still at the bottom but he's the only one that knows what he’s doing around here). Speaks in lyrics and The Office memes. Actually understands Snapchat.


Designer extraordinaire. You throw a bunch of random words and ideas at him that don't make much sense (and most likely involve a unicorn head), and he always delivers. In record speed.


Team Pet
Not Pugly. Pug-leigh. Make sure you get it right or she'll gum you to death. Toothless, loves bananas, and was probably a cat in a past life.
