Story
Introduction
I'm the VP of Product Management @AffinionLoyalty. I'm a tech nerd that loves to follow the startup world. I've been Enchanted by +Guy Kawasaki and am doing my best to Enchant-it-forward!

I'm on twitter @mcdonnellm02 and you will find most of my tweets related to loyalty marketing #lmktg, the start up world, crossfit or the Paleo lifestyle.

I'm surrounded by ladies at home with an incredible wife and two great daughters.
Bragging rights
Finished a strict 30 day Paleo challenge where I lost 12 lbs, 4% body fat and many inches from my body!
