What a bad week for privacy. Consumer watchdogs gave up on government talks over facial recognition software after industry groups appeared to reject even basic restrictions on face-scanning. Meanwhile, Facebook rolled out a new service called “Moments”…

Story
Tagline
Longtime blogger, aspiring photographer and digital strategist
Introduction
I'm a semi-nerd, full-time geek and accidental entrepreneur with a varied background. I started in traditional print design and art direction and ended up in digital marketing.

I have a personal site that I've done for eleven years called blurbomat. You can click here to visit it. There I have shared photos, written about being a father of two beautiful, smart funny and amazing daughters, about living as a liberal in a very conservative state and about geek stuff.

    I help brands make a difference using relevant technologies and media. Today, audiences live in multiple places whether on social media sites, on mobile devices or in front of a screen watching streaming media on their own time. This radical reshaping of behavior requires taking a macro view of the media landscape and devising innovative methods to engage people where they are.
