Why are you a part of the Austin AMA?
“I joined the AMA to connect with like-minded Marketers throughout the Austin area and beyond.”
What (or who) is your favorite marketing blog or thought leader?
“As a media research geek, I have a hard time selecting just one. I read MediaPost, AdWeek, Marketing News and updates from the 4A’s religiously.

“I am inspired by the constant evolution and intertwining of technology and media. This industry never slows down. It keeps me motivated and energized.”
