Story
Tagline
Community Manager & Social Business Geek
Introduction
I lead and manage online communities for Experian.

I love writing
I started blogging in 1999 when blogs were more like online diaries. I started all types of blogs over the years, but lately write about student productivity, social media, Google+, financial education, and nonsense.  I' also enjoy writing about community building and ways to lead successful online communities.

Here are some articles I've written:

Social Media
Personal Finance & Credit 
Student Productivity & Education
Drivel
I love sharing Google+ tips
I manage a Google+ tips page to help people and businesses with using Google+.  Circle it if you want to get Google+ tips and tricks added to your stream.

I manage Google+ communities
I really enjoy meeting others that like talking about social media. I moderate the "LinkedIn for Business" community and would love for you to join. We're discussing ways to leverage LinkedIn to increase leads and sales. 

I love to share.
I love to share articles and media that interests me -- articles on design, business, food, art, music, technology, science, writing, theology, social media,  and pure wackiness. If there's a certain circle of content you're interested, just let me know and I'll add you. 


Bragging rights
I started balding in my twenties - and unable to grow a manly beard.

10 LinkedIn Skills Every Professional Should Have
+Neal Schaffer shares ten skills that every professional should have as a LinkedIn user. 

Love Neal's tip about writing professional headlines for your profile:

"The Professional Headline is always the hardest part for every LinkedIn user to craft. My advice: Do a search for similar professionals and see what headlines they use. You are bound to find some great ideas and inspiration to use on your own. Hint: Don't just put your title and company name. Think of your professional objective for using LinkedIn and how you can genuinely help others."
