First Post - About me

Well, the first post is often the hardest to do, so don't expect too much:

I am a two-time graduate of New York University (B.S. 2002, M.A. 2007) and an alumnus of the American Academy of Dramatic Arts (2003). While in graduate school I developed an interest in online social networking, which led into a thesis project looking at the effects of these networking sites on existing offline networks and relationships. This work led to the development of a very important project for me, Project Bike. To date we have raised over $7000 for various cancer related charities including the Youngs Survival Coalition and the Lance Armstrong Foundation. I have been utilizing social networking services and social media to raise money for non-profit organizations for 5 years, and I can honestly say that I thoroughly enjoy what I do.

Aside from education and work I live in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn with my wonderful wife Beth and our cat Toby. My family has been in the New York metro area since the 1920's, so I think it's safe to say I'll be here for a while.

Well, it's not much but it's a start. In the future I will be posting opinions of new media communications tools and online social networking. But for now, I think I'll end before I regret it.
