The more casual version of my bio goes like this:
I'm a native Texan and military brat who ended up spending most of my time in the Austin area growing up. I moved from Texas to Washington D.C. right out of college. Today I split my time between D.C. and Austin with more and more of my time back in D.C.
While in D.C. I was a Legislative Assistant to Congressman J.J. "Jake" Pickle, Legislative Director to current U.S. Senator Tim Johnson, and a Congressional lobbyist for two major associations - the National Association of Realtors and the American Medical Association. Since returning to Texas I've done similar work for my alma mater, Texas State University.
I'm now a public affairs and social media consultant which means I'm involved in politics, government affairs, public policy issues while integrating new forms of communications and organization into my main areas of interest.
I'm also involved with some non-profit causes that I try to assist using social media tools. I'd like you to consider helping Mobile Loaves and Fishes if you're willing and able.
