He also wrote Conversation Marketing:  Internet Marketing Strategies. He writes regularly for the Portent Blog and Search Engine Land, and has been published on AllThingsD, Forbes.com and TechCrunch.

You may find him teaching his kids to play D&D on the weekends, or dragging his tongue on the ground as he pedals his way up Seattle’s ridiculously steep hills.
