Tris Hussey: writer, author, editor technologist
I am a storyteller at heart. I find the magic that makes a company, an app, or a solution special and then connect that to what your customers want to get done (or stop doing). I find the threads that enthrall people and weave them into an engaging narrative.
As a digital and content marketer, I have created brand stories in all form imaginable. I’ve blogged (Canada’s first professional blogger, in fact), podcasted, created video tutorials (including two video series on using WordPress), and given presentations and classes all over North America. I don’t see content as just one medium and I match the story to the medium that’s right for the audience.
I’ve worked in both B2B and B2C companies and learned that no matter the who the “2” is, there is a person on the other end. A person who as a job to get done, a pain to relieve, and would like a solution. People want to know how something fixes a problem in their life (work or personal).
While writing and creativity are my hallmarks, I am a technologist to the core. I love technology. I like to immerse myself in new things. I love to learn about new tools, try new tools, and just be that excited, passionate geek whose excitement and passion becomes infectious to everyone around him. I look at technology as an extension of myself. I embrace it and learn it with gusto.
