Chicago, Illinois, United States

Built my first Web site in 1995. Turned pro in 1996. Spent the next ten years launching social tools before we even called it that.

Starting in 2006 advised Fortune 500 (B2B, B2C, Pharma) on setting social strategies that not only won awards but more importantly drove measurable sales results.

Was McDonald's first-ever Director of Social Media making it the top social restaurant brand and most talked about non-tech brand.

Now co-Founder and Executive Director for Manifest Social -- a collective of former social leads from Fortune 100 companies with a mission to help large complex organizations separate hype from reality and make real business sense from the social revolution.
