Mac grew up in Greencastle, PA where he first found entrepreneurship by trading baseball cards and selling them on eBay. His dad is a successful business owner and entrepreneur, and his mom recently retired from teaching. Having similar aspirations, Mac aims to run these successful local businesses in which he can help local business owners, while also being able to ad junct teach at Temple University.
Instead of following his parents and brother’s footsteps to Penn State, Mac decided to accept a D3 scholarship to play soccer at VWC in Virginia Beach for 2 years. Realizing he no longer wanted to play professionally, Mac decided to transfer to PSU where he traded sports for entrepreneurship, and started taking classes centered around his interests and expertise.

Upon graduation in 2013 Mac was recruited by Google, and went to work for them 2 years in Ann Arbor, MI. A year into the job he got bored and started another phone repair company, Ann Arbor iPhone Repair, where he taught himself all about SEO. Around that time he was beginning to develop confidence in his ability to start and run his own agency, so he took a leap of faith and partnered with a technical co-founder to start Momentum Digital.
“My entire mission is to help small business owners and those who aren’t savvy with digital media, because they need it the most. Hundreds of businesses die every single day because they can’t keep up with SEO, social media, websites, and what to do to compete with the competition and bigger players in the digital space. The sad thing is, I know a lot of people like that, and they are the type of people who built this country. Those are the people we want to help and who we can provide the most value. Philadelphia is the perfect place for this too because we’re rather anti corporate, anti-franchise, so there’s a lot of small businesses to work with. Knowing what I know about SEO and digital marketing makes me feel good and as if I’m actually making a difference and providing them with the digital momentum they need.”
Mac now runs both companies and has no plans of selling or moving anytime soon. He was recently featured in an article and video by CBS talking about how he exploded into the Philly entrepreneurial scene!
