Hi, I am Ali Ghasehirad, one of the founders of Rodexo Marketing.
I am your internet marketing specialist.
When not leading your team of internet marketing specialists, I am your classic “nerd.” I have 14 years’ experience in internet marketing. Believe it or not, I, believe it or not, actually enjoy reading books on business management and marketing. My favorite game is chess, and I will take a match anytime I am challenged. I have an MBA, as well as a degree in Metallurgy, and a Certificate of Confectionary. My beautiful wife of 8 years loves having me cook, and I love cooking for her.
When not buried with my nose in a book or designing web pages, my wife and I love travelling the world. We especially love visiting beaches. There are no simply better beaches than in Bali, Indonesia. I highly recommend it. And the fishing is beyond compare.
For downtime, when neither travelling nor burying my nose in a book, I love to watch the Chicago Bulls. I truly believe the best basketball player of all time was Michael Jordan. Forget LaBron James, Stephen Curry, and Kevin Durant, they are great, but none will surpass Michael Jordan in my mind.
In addition to working for multiple website design companies, I specialize in the following areas of online marketing:
- Booking / Reservations / Availability Systems
- Social Media Integration — Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google+, etc.
- Email Newsletters
- Mobile-Optimized Websites
- Printer-Friendly Websites

Hi! I’m Christy Decker, one of the founders of Rodexo Marketing.
While I have no claim to fame in computers or marketing, a variety of unique skills and talents have led me to helping found Rodexo Marketing, though I did go to a University for business and marketing.
I became interested in marketing back in the 1980’s, when I realized the comedic value of commercials. While this format is not used much any longer, it still has much value in the advertising world, and I would encourage you to consider it when developing your brand. I can give many examples of companies that have made millions based on their comedic advertising.
A few years later, I discovered the magic of the home computer, and its coming effects on society. Back when I got my first computer, the internet was not even really in its infancy as far as marketing was concerned. When I started, it was DOS, floppy disks, and landlines to call, if you were lucky enough, a local bulletin board. After that, I progressed through Prodigy, AOL, and then the full-fledged internet. In the early days of the internet, I enjoyed creating webpages, hand -coded, as well as other ways of contributing to the online growing community.
Through all of this, my first love was writing. This experience led me to a love of copywriting for both radio, TV and internet advertising.
After 20 years practice as a registered nurse, I became disabled. This has led me to a career including writing for various publications and websites. My interests naturally led to copywriting, and helping to design online marketing efforts for a variety of industries.
When not involved in work, you will likely find me with family. Born and raised in the Midwest, (Blame my love of the Cornhuskers on my upbringing,) family is the core of my existence. I have 2 children that I “hatched,” and a few more than I raised. My oldest daughter is almost 29 (boy do I feel old,) and is an internet marketing specialist in her own right. I have been blessed to have her input in marketing as well as my own experience.
My son is now almost 22. He shares with me on a regular basis his insights into the world of computing and gaming.
I have several grandchildren, and it is likely on any given weekend you will find my wonderful husband and me either out on a golf course, or swimming with our grandchild. Golf courses are built on only the most beautiful of sites, and besides, my grandson can really hit that golf ball at only 2 years of age. You also should see him swim! Good thing, as we don’t live far from the beach, and better to know how to swim if anywhere near the ocean. Ask me for a video. I’m a proud grandma and show him off whenever I can!
I have many other grandchildren as well as one on the way. Unfortunately, most are not nearby, and I don’t get to see them often. But that never diminishes a grandmother’s love.
In addition to my husband, kids and grandkids, I have a deep love of dogs. Currently I have 3 beautiful dogs. One is a chihuahua, one is a cockapoo, and one is a big red butt. We know her mother was a lab, but not sure what her father was. She has the most beautiful red coat you have ever seen. The 2 small dogs are 6 pounds, while the big one is 60 pounds. I find it fun to walk the big one, then walk the chihuahua along the same route. If I see the same person the second time, I tell them, “exercise works great, she shrunk.”
In conclusion, I love my job, my family, golf and my dogs. I hope you will join our Rodexo family.
