For the last ten years, I’ve been running the marketing department of Screaming Circuits, an online, personal manufacturing company. I joined the company when it was struggling to break from traditional old-world manufacturing.
Under my leadership as the senior marketing executive, Screaming Circuits has grown from a small niche player to an industry leader and trend setter – reinventing electronics manufacturing in North America. I’ve brought successful content marketing / social media marketing into the formerly stodgy manufacturing industry.
In addition to driving the marketing, I started and am the primary author of the Screaming Circuits blog since 2006 (about 700 posts and growing). I’m a contributing author to EE-Times and other United Business Media (UBM) online publications, and am a regular speaker at industry events.
While not using my unique style of brand and technology-based marketing at Screaming Circuits, I keep my mind sharp, and industry knowledge current through my electronic gadget operation: SteelPuppet.
