Introduction
I'm a fully-caffeinated, passionate pragmatist. Not to mention, in random order, a marketing geek, social media experiment, a something person, unabashadly proud Cincinnati native, a part-time blogger and presenter, but a full time/overtime/time of my life Dad.

Thanks for stopping by! -- Kevin Dugan
