I previously worked at Pride in 2011 to establish their social media presence as part of the marketing team with David Contois, owner of BluSkye Group and Frank Scarpacci, owner of The Vianova Group LLC. I increased their Twitter followers by 55% and Facebook fans by 40% in less than 3 months. I am very excited to be involved again in this ever-growing annual event.”
