I was recently interviewed by Shane Haggerty (@shanehaggerty) for his blog The Social Learning Lab.

Shane and I talked about how I got involved with social media from my time working at Northfield Mount Hermon School to moving into my position as Director here at edSocialMedia.

There are two parts the interview which you can find here – Part 1 and Part 2

I think the interview is valuable because it will give ESM readers an idea of the direction I think the company is headed as well as give insight on my background.

Why am I passionate about social media and education? Check out the interviews and let the ESM community know what drives you!
