You can find Michael Gray published on Tecca, WoW Insider, Yahoo, USA Today, The Saturday Evening Post, MSNBC, and many others. An experienced digital nomad, Gray writes about tech, culture, and lifestyle in dozens of the web’s corners. In his free time, Gray tackles social media management, video production and syndication, as well as vendor relationships for online publications. He consults with start-ups and established businesses alike to craft meaningful content marketing; as a member of the press himself, he helps companies wear a white hat in their press relations while achieving remarkable results.
In a previous life, Gray built a customer relationship center for a large veterinary pharmaceutical firm, created a community management plan, and navigated B2B operations across technology and medical partners. Using his passion for strong relationships, Gray helped multiple charity organizations find just the right pitch with their donors and customers. He mentored dozens of recent graduates in finding their own dreams, building their teams, and achieving success in business and the arts.
Lastly, Gray spends many weekends photographing weddings, because he loves to see people smile. His first novel is due out in the last quarter of 2012.
From Michael, “I love surrounding myself with an environment of other professionals doing the same thing I am: continuously building their skills, careers, networks, and profiles.”
“As the saying goes, you have to be in it to win it. Joining a community of creative and driven out-of-the-boxers is the best way for anyone to truly be in it. I’m coworking because I want coworkers. I like collaboration. [My first] week, I got to talk about DNS networking and OpenDNS, trade some knowledge about 37 Signals, and even expand some photography options. Glen and Julia have built an already impressive environment and community, where any number of roaming internet entrepreneurs and dynamic individuals could join forces, collaborate, and really do some astounding things. Nestled in the inspirational downtown Frederick, plenty of local color serves as a quick pick-me-up and mental refresher. How could anyone pass all that up?”
