If you want to skip the long story, just go to my short summary
. Long summary: "As a proponent of content marketing, my work revolves around brand galas and other promo events in New York City. If copywriters are sugarcubes and journalists are closer to ice cubes, then I'm like a Rubik's cube. My interaction with different verticals puts me in a colorful category of writers."
I'm not on Google+ to prospect - Whomever needs to find me finds me outside of Google+ anyway. I'm here to LEARN
about tools mainly, and a little social media too. If you're into biz tools, we'll get along famously. Since getting active on Google+ in May 2013, I'm now a fan of social media communities and tribes. People power, basically. But in case you're curious I also help sites, brands, PR agencies, etc. I help smaller agencies (and not so small ones) navigate into PR 2.0 from old-school PR. See my other site, A Friend To PR Agencies
, for more on that. The reason it exists: I believe in what Joe Pulizzi says about saying something new, not just saying something old in a new way.
My non-tech interests are: health food (slow carbs, high fiber, etc), apartment/house solutions, music.
As for my feelings on tech, I don't love tech. I like it because it helps the world, whether it's B2B or consumer tech. When people first meet me, they overestimate my tech skills, but the truth of the matter is, when people say I'm "good with tech", I laugh and correct them - I'm good with navigation after awhile, and therefore, usage. Big difference. Whatever I'm using, I make the most of it. So that's the difference in a nutshell. To label me as "good with tech" can lead a person to infer, erroneously, that I'm some sort of fixit whiz or troubleshooting whiz - I'm not cut from that cloth.
