In Kindergarten, they put a mic in my hand to MC a circus. I memorized my lines, didn’t need the cue cards they made for me and since that time I’ve always felt at home in front of an audience. I taught myself HTML from trial & error and books while in high school. My first web job came in 1996, working for a startup that was later acquired by Earthlink. Since then, I’ve grown from a network administrator, to spending the past eight years as a web strategist working in higher education.
I’m the Founder & Director of Aggregate Web Conference, taking place this September 29-30th in Louisville. I’m also a partner at Skov, Eliot + Berg, a management consultancy for digital strategy. In my day job, I’m currently the Director of Web Strategy for the Kentucky Community & Technical College System, a network of sixteen public community & technical colleges dotted around the state.
My speaking experience ranges from crowds of tens to thousands. I’ve shared my knowledge at world-class institutions such as Penn State, University of Michigan, University of Colorado and many more. I have developed a reputation for provocative insights.
As a digital director, strategy & user advocate, I’ve spent the past decade helping people make better sense of the web and stay on top of constantly changing trends. I’ve led website redesigns from concept to completion, developed social media programs & served as a trusted resource for C-level leaders seeking to leverage the power of digital to advance the brand.
Along the way, I’ve founded companies, led non-profits, coached & mentored to pay forward the sorts of lessons imparted in me from people cared enough to help me reach this point.
