I advise companies seeking to integrate social media with their traditional PR, marketing and communications efforts and help them create a presence on social networks appropriate for their business objectives. I also create and teach educational workshops around social media and social networking.
A co-founding member of the international group, I also founded the Austin chapter of the Social Media Club, an association for new and emerging media professionals. I’m passionate about using new technologies to build bridges between people, ideas and causes. When a friend was diagnosed with breast cancer in late 2007, I created the Frozen Pea Fund, which was profiled in Shel Israel’s book, Twitterville.
