Ashley & Me

This post is long overdue and I wanted to get it out right after IZEAFest 2008 but things got a little crazy busy.

This is my friend Ashley. He works for IZEA and was the driving force behind IZEAFest 2008. Ashley contacted all the speakers and worked with everyone involved from the venue to the lunch location. He’s an unsung hero of IZEA that I want to recognize.

I’ve known Ashley for a few years now. We met face to face at Collegefest 2007. He is a great guy who works his butt off. I am very happy to call him one of my friends and look forward to our next IZEA adventure.

He is also someone who keeps the IZEA community informed through Twitter as himself Social_Citizen and as IZEAinc. He is an important Team Member of IZEA and he even went and sent out recognition items to the speakers including me. Very cool.
