I have been building and managing online communities for 14 years.
My communities have been recognized by Web User magazine and the Telegraph newspaper. I have been interviewed by the BBC and I have given community building advice to the New York City Department of Education. My work has been used to help explain the benefits of community and the importance of community strategy to Le Figaro newspaper.
I can transform and reinvigorate communities that are losing momentum, manage existing communities, and build brand new online communities from the ground up.
I am passionate about online communities – I don’t like seeing them fail. Let’s work together to ensure yours is a success.
