Great lunch today with some old friends and some new ones too.
Doug McSorley (@dougmcsorley)
Even though we’re both in Rochester, Doug and I were connected through social media for several years before we finally managed to meet in person. (Although, in our defense, I was living in Oregon for a good portion of that time.) Doug specializes in social media, SEO and web analytics. He tweets on those topics @dougmcsorley and blogs at Vinnie D Social Media.
Amber Rampino (@AmberUX)
Amber is currently a Buffalo-based visual and user experience designer, internet marketer and type nerd (that last part is her words not mine). In addition to planning a relocation to Rochester, Amber recently left the agency world to fully embrace freelancing. Keep your eyes on her tweets and www.amberrampino.com for her portfolio, which is coming soon.
Matthew Ray (@MatthewRay)
Matt is the Social Media and Digital Marketing Specialist at Global Crossing, which means that he touches just about everything Internet-related for them. Matt is very involved in local community events and I’m excited to be working with him to put on the local Rochester Twestival event (@ROCTwestival), which he’s been involved with for many years. I don’t know when he finds the time, but when he does, he enjoys traveling and photography.
