Can you tell us a little about your professional background? I have been practicing the mystical art of digital marketing for over 15 years. I have worked onwith a variety of clients. Most recently, I worked for Edelman as a Director of SEO for some key clients.
How do you enjoy spending your time outside the office? My hobbies include swimming, woodworking / doing stuff around the house, cooking, biking and hiking with the family. What did you want to be when you grew up (before you knew you would have a career in marketing)? I wanted to be an astronaut when I was in elementary school. It looked like so much fun to float—even better than floating underwater with a scuba tank on since it would last longer.
