I’ve been creating content before the Internet was “a thing”! After a misguided master’s degree in video game production (seriously), I found my true calling – Internet content marketing. I’ve been with We Do Web Content, Inc. for almost 5 years now and have had the pleasure of taking on such roles as content writer, topic and keyword curator, social media manager, local business listing optimizer, and in-office chef. I work remotely from home with my 4 cats and when I’m not making the Internet a better place, I’m cooking tasty things or playing video games.
Chris Jenkins has spent more than 15 years in the technology industry, both as a programmer/analyst, and as a project manager for both public and private sector development. He spent five years in private practice as a WordPress application developer before accepting the role of Chief Architect at BenefitNext.com. In his current role, he leads development in both .Net and WordPress based applications which provide business intelligence functions to companies impacted by the ACA. When he feels like it, he blogs about WordPress, social media, and other internet ramblings.
