Story
Tagline
I'm a communications pro and social media geek!
Introduction
I'm a communications professional who's passionate about social media, building my career in PR and online marketing in NYC.  I was raised in St. Louis, where I studied film at Webster University and started blogging in 2004, then moved to DC to study Public Communications at American University.  I like to share photos on Flickr, writing reviews of tasty beers on my blog, and connecting with like-minded professionals using social media.
Bragging rights
MA in Communications, and an undergrad in Film. Don't hate the hipster, hate the irony!
