I love to browse the latest industry tools on Product Hunt. I also regularly read Search Engine Watch, Social Media Explorer, and the blogs from the main social media platforms.

Side projects

I am a member of a public speaking group called Humorous Toastmasters, where last year, I served as VP Membership.

Ideal team

I love clients that have a responsive point person that could deliver assets if needed. Teams that like organization & regularly scheduled call-ins would be great. If they have a project management / task management system they like to use, even better!
