I am an active duty officer in the U.S. Coast Guard. A University of Washington alumn, I majored in English. I have a photography site as well out there, I knit, and I spend a lot of time learning as much as I can. I have been blogging and working on social media projects since the mid 1990s. In the realm of social media for the Coast Guard, I designed the flagship service blog for the Coast Guard and take a strong interest in social media and the changes that it is causing in the way we do business. I don’t just mean the Coast Guard, I mean all of us.
This blog is a place to discuss and go over social media in the world, in my service of choice the CG, in the government, etc. Of course occasionally there will probably be discussion about having a career in the Coast Guard, occasionally.
