Who am I? I am an online marketer who has worked in the technology space for over a decade. My new venture is ArCompany. I'm working with some pretty amazing colleagues in their own right: Amy Tobin and Bob Jones. We are excited about this next evolution of social and what it will mean for business. We want to help businesses get there and capitalize on what what's coming.
I am also a writer with Steamfeed, Huffington Post, What's Your Tech and Digital Journal. I am also one of 3 Marketing Geeks in a weekly pubcast on technology. Previous experiences include Jugnoo, Due North, Isobar Digital, Yahoo! Overlay.TV, Citibank, CIBC, Ogilvy and Rapp Collins. I have views on advertising, emerging technology including video, and social web applications. I’m living and breathing in the social web space and cannot consume as quickly as this space evolves. I follow politics, environmental initiatives, and music (mainly the old stuff pre 1990).
Some quick notes about me: Marketer… Cellist…US Politics watcher…Twitterer, Yoga-er??!… Fave coffee: Tall Non-fat Caramel Macchiato – Starbucks…Michael Jackson fan…Jeffery Deaver fanatic….sap for human interest stories..Rubik’s cubist…dabbled in pointillism… interest in caricatures and nude painting…can say the alphabet backwords…know most world capitals… hockey and soccer mom…
