I lead social marketing and consumer engagement for Bloomin’ Brands Inc, a portfolio of national restaurant brands: Outback Steakhouse, Bonefish Grill, Carrabba’s Italian Grill, Flemings Prime Steakhouse and Roy’s.
Building customer relationships through social channels and working on engagement programs is what I love. As crazy as social media is and will continue to be, a few things remain constant: people, relationships, conversations. These three things make my heart pound.
In addition to working at Bloomin’ Brands, over the past few years I’ve had the honor of speaking to groups about social marketing at events all over the world. If you’re interested in seeing where I’ve been, go here.
Finally, I’m a family man and have a beautiful wife and three amazing children. My other loves are: coffee, DMB, eating out and my church.
