About Duane

Though I have many years of experience in marketing and communications, I approach each project with a beginner’s mind. I don’t profess to have all the answers and I’m wary of those who think they do. James Thurber, the renowned author, hit the bullseye when he observed, “It is better to know some of the questions than all of the answers.”

I won’t bore you with my career accomplishments, but if you’re curious you can view my profile on LinkedIn, connect with me on Facebook, see the world through my camera lens on Instagram, or follow my sporadic tweets on Twitter. Though I am mostly known for my work in nonprofit marketing and communications, I am also committed to success in my roles as a husband, father, friend, mentor, teacher, blogger, volunteer, and community citizen.

Reflecting upon my purpose in life, I have come to realize that my personal mission and my career passions blend together seamlessly. My threefold mission in both my career and in my life are:

  1. To understand the world around me.
  2. To create order from within the apparent chaos.
  3. To share unconditionally the abundance in my life.

Although this blog mainly focuses on marketing and communications, it also encompasses all three facets of my mission statement. First, I write to gain a deeper understanding of various issues. Second, by rearranging my ideas and combining them with those of other creative minds, I am able to discern patterns and to create a sense of purpose from within the chaos. Finally, I work to share ideas, to offer encouragement and ultimately to enrich the lives of others.

When it’s all said and done, I’m just a simple guy trying to figure things out. If you’re like me—having more questions than answers—then pull up a chair and let’s chat. I’ll share what’s on my mind, and I’d really like to hear what’s on yours.
