Active Projects

One of my driving beliefs is that the world should be a better place because by the time I go to bed each day. These projects are just some of the ways I embody that belief. 

 
 

Projects Which Are Running On Autopilot

These are some projects which I have built from the ground up and are now running on their own with only a little active involvement on my part. 

 

Projects In retirement

Here I list some projects which have run their course and are either in the hands of another team or are inactive. 


What Is The Social Media Canvas? 

Social Media Canvas is a one-page social media plan. This one-page canvas gives "main street" businesses a simple way to plan out an overarching social media plan without having to know the ins and outs of social media marketing.

For larger businesses the Social Media Canvas helps ground conversations about social media marketing, acting as a principles document to frame the conversation.
