Media relations is a competitive sport. #PR pros vie for journalists’ attention and, just like in the #Olympics, only those with the right combination of high-quality equipment, first-class training and a flawless execution take home the gold http://bit.ly/1hPdiv1 << Awesome post by my +Lois Paul and Partners colleague +Emilie Salvagio

Don’t have $150,000 for a #CES booth? No worries. More journalists are paying attention to companies that dare to take the risk of simply being themselves. My latest >> http://bit.ly/1dtULfE

Story
Tagline
Digital Strategist | Love people, jokes, travel, music, Austin, tech, digital media, soccer | Pretty much in that order.
Introduction
I'm a digital communications professional. I love to get my hands on anything social, digital, gadgety. I'm big on travel, live music, people, learning, stories and jokes (emphasis on delivery). None of the above is mutually exclusive.

My work revolves around helping organizations use emerging technologies, social media and digital content to achieve truly integrated programs that support business objectives; as well as taking a dual technologist-strategist approach to lead and better collaborate within multifunctional teams.

I have served on the advisory boards of my local DC and Austin Social Media Clubs as well as Social Media Club Education, an initiative aimed at integrating social media into higher education to better prepare students and engage them in more meaningful ways.
Bragging rights
Sweet soccer-related ACL surgery scar. Amazing friends and family (can I take credit for that?). Flash-speed typing skills. Experiences! No regrets, other than not guarding my knee properly while playing soccer... And all over again whilst skiing.

Greatest service ever. I came here because I bought a deal on Groupon, but I was pleasantly surprised by the above-and-beyond service. I had my oil changed in 15 minutes and even had my fluids topped off for free. I waited inside the nice and cool office, where they have free water, coffee, donuts, a vending machine, two desktop computers and free wi-fi. Excellent experience!
