Introduction

About Me

I'm the managing director at Advance Systems & Research team. The company was founded on one principle: to help businesses overcome their innovation and resource challenges. Our business is centered around the concept of helping companies of all sizes treat technology as a tool, and not as the goal, for business. Our core expertise started with educational publishing and has expanded into other areas.

I'm skilled at working with, and through, teams. I understand people and how to motivate them, and I have more than 10 years of experience in the following areas:

Business: Leadership and management, entrepreneurship, strategy & development, implementing policies, set objectives, digital marketing strategies, and team direction.

Video: All aspects of video production: writing, shooting, editing, and directing. I specialize in educational, documentary, marketing, and corporate videos.

Digital Media: Management of mobile app development, interactive media, and e-Learning products from idea to completion for entrepreneurs and educational publishers.

Education: I teach and develop college courses in video production, cinema, public speaking, communications, and topics in media studies.

Did Kurt Geenbaum go too far? (off the record)

Publication: Saint Louis Journalism Review
Date: Dec 01, 2009
On Nov. 13, 2009 Kurt Greenbaum, the director of Social Media for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch who goes by the brand name "STL Social Media Guy," posted a routine question on his blog. The question asked "What's the craziest thing you've ever eaten? And did you like it?" While many users had bizarre foods listed such as rattlesnake, cow tongue and such, Kurt noticed that a user posted an inappropriate message. It comment was deleted, but that deletion lead to an international online outcry.
