It’s more refreshing to say it than to type it, but I love what I do.

My name is Patrick Powers and I am a marketing and communications professional based in St. Louis, Mo. This blog is about those things in my professional life I love and enjoy: higher education, marketing, communications, social media and the web.

My background includes more than 12 years in the marketing and communications field with experience as a reporter, writer, editor, web developer and community manager. I wouldn’t change a thing.

I’m always open to new ideas and willing to share what I learn — hence this blog. Copy, comment, share and enjoy.
