If you could ask a stranger one question... what would it be?
So I have this card game on my desk... What, How, Where. Pick a what, pick a how, and pick a where. Hoping this would spark some thought, I played this morning, and here is what I received. Thought...

So I think I'm about to start using Google + more often. Their app has awesome colors and graphics. It's like being a kid in a toy store again!

3 traits of Millennial-Run Orgs.

Sidepreneurship, Open & Connected, and Social Impact. Agree??

This is a fantastic story to start the day with. #Tumblr and social media not only saving a family but starting a business.

Didn't even watch the video. Only HEARD what he said and can't believe he wasn't let go on the spot.
 
How the Rutgers head basketball coach still has a job is beyond me. This isn't Penn St. bad, but it's bad enough to lose your job.

"Millennials want to be involved.  They don't want to just write a check"

I do like the conclusion the article came to. It's true! Even if I have the money, I would much rather be involved. I do think Millennials are bringing questions to their workplace that Boomers didn't ask of their bosses. We go to work expecting our jobs to do something great in the world, not just when we are volunteering. That's also why I love being a fundraising copywriter! I go to work, and I change the world.

Story
Tagline
Say HI to someone new. Make people smile.
Introduction
The oldest of four brothers, part of a great family, and blessed to have the friends that I have.

My passions lay with advocating for the underserved communities in our nation and using social media to do so.  And, I like to balance that out with a good dose of coaching youth basketball.

An easy going, yet driven personality has gotten me to where I am today, and I am grateful for what may come in the future!
