I am passionate about educating young men and women, up and coming bloggers, brands and brand managers about the blogging industry.  Having blogged for 10 years, I am a veteran in the industry making me the perfect fit for many types of engagements. I have built a brand of my own that continues to change and grow a loyal community of friends, followers and fans across multiple web platforms. My speaking style is very honest and personal, and I have been covering a wide range of topics in my speaking engagements from social media, and the beauty industry, branding best practices and beyond.
