Hello, my name is Dave Janklow. I am from the great state of South Dakota and ended up in the Pacific Northwest via the Army. I was once a proud grunt and was blessed enough to serve my Country, and to have also served with some of the greatest men I have ever met while deployed in Iraq. Currently, I am the proud owner and founder of Norse Sound Creative, LLC, which was launched in November of 2017. We are a veteran owned and operated small business in Mount Vernon, Washington. Our name not only speaks to where we live and work, but also who we are. “Norse” is an old Scandinavian term for North and since I am a proud Scandinavian, I figured there should be no other name for my business. We are proud to offer our services of web design, branding/logo creation, mobile app development and digital marketing services to other small businesses in Skagit County, and to the rest of the North Sound as well.
How did I get here professionally? Following my time in service, I worked for a small consulting firm that specialized in training soldiers and rangers on various technology applications. This job sparked my interest in technology and allowed me to learn the various aspects behind the requirements of information gathering and analysis, in addition to the understanding of how to create a solution to meet clients’ needs. It was a challenging career that sent me all over the world. I was immersed in different cultures, forced to learn and adapt, and also given the responsibility to accomplish things on my own, which cultivated an entrepreneurial spirit within myself. During this time, I earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Business Administration from DeVry University and started my Masters in Strategic Communication from the University of Iowa.
After my work with the consulting firm, I was fortunate enough to become apart of ACi Creative Design, a small digital marketing firm here in the Puget Sound. While working for this firm I gained a solid understanding of digital marketing practices and consulting with small and mid-size businesses in order to help find digital solutions for their business needs and goals. This organization is what brought to light my passion for using technology and the web to help my clients maximize their business potential. I took over and re-branded the firm to Norse Sound Creative and never looked back!
On a more personal note, I am a proud father of two Norski sons (Barrett and Rowan), and a very lucky husband to my amazing wife Shelby. We love living and working here in Skagit Valley. When not chasing the kids or working, we love to be out on the water, in the mountains or spending time with family both here in the Pacific Northwest and back home in South Dakota.
