Full bio

I have a wide range of experience from the biotechnology field to the tax field to media and website development.  I am a social media guru and power networker. I started out as a blogger with only basic programming knowledge.  I trained in Drupal, WordPress, and other web content management systems. My knowledge of blogging, Twitter networking, and web development help me unify expert teams of artists, writers, and web developers for our social media campaigns.
