Before I answer any questions, thank you. For reading. So much. I can’t help writing – but you reading it is a thrill.
Who am I? The short version, work edition.
I am a writer. A marketing communications consultant. A journalist. A ghostwriter. I’ve done everything from public relations to social-media education to employee communications. Always in healthcare. For my current CV, see LinkedIn. See also Blog 101 (2005), Twitter: The Primer (series, 2008), Going Tribal (2010) and The Matt Hall Questions (series, 2010).
Who am I? The short version, non-work edition. Bubbly introvert. Mostly reformed nomad. Surprise athlete. Compulsive organizer. Bookworm. Artist. See also Ten Things (2006), Desperate for Content… (2007), Stripping, Science and Other Fallback Careers (2008), Facebook to Blog to New York Times (2009), I Love Geeks (2010), Depression: Nothing to Get Depressed About (2011), Get to Know Your Blogger (2014), The Proust Questionnaire (2014) and Top Tens of 2014 (2014). And yes, in 2013 I was diagnosed with tall-cell papillary thyroid cancer (for that, search for “Interesting Times” posts).
