April Fools!

Just kidding! I’m having the best time. It’s been 2 weeks since I first walked through these doors full-time. I can tell you, it’s been a hell of a great time so far. Although everyone has been incredibly nice, it didn’t stop them from treating me like a long-time employee right from the beginning. That’s exactly what I wanted. Even during the first week, they were throwing things at me left and right expecting me to get things done by the deadline, with no excuses. It always takes a little bit to get comfortable with everything when you start somewhere for the first time, but I love a good challenge. And challenge me, they did.

Because I’m a social media guy, I’ve had the opportunity to start looking through that telescope from the angle of many different industries. It’s been fun learning what each want and have set for goals, which allows me to become even more diverse in my career. On a personal level, I spend most of my time on Twitter and Google+. I stay as active as possible because it helps me stay up-to-date on all social media happenings and keep ahead of the curve. People always ask me why I spend any time on Google+. I always say, “because it’s the best overall platform out there”. I’m always involved in G+ Hangouts or getting involved in the recently created Communities. And if I’m not following you back on Twitter or G+, yell at me to do it!

A little about me. I love getting involved in things around the community, especially with kids. I’ve coached for 7 years, both track and field and basketball. I have been involved with Junior Achievement and Boys & Girls Club and I hope to do so again soon. I’m excited to get more involved with Milwaukee organizations like Social Media Club, United AdWorkers, Young Professionals groups and more!

I like to spend much of my time out in the city exploring all the cool things that are happening, from museums, Bucks and Brewers games and any event that sounds fun. I’m a big food and beer lover so I’m going to try to find all sorts of fun, new places to eat. I dig concerts, especially country concerts, and county fairs so expect to see me around those events. I have never been to Summerfest or the State Fair, but this year I plan to change that. I have to get back in the swing of things with basketball, tennis and golf too. Can’t be sitting on my butt during the summer. I want to get to know as many people as possible, so I hope to meet you soon.

Ok, enough about me. Hope this gives you a slight insight into who I am. Feel free to connect with me on Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn.
