Chris McManamy (@ChrisMcManamy) is Project Engineer at Acropolis Technology Group in St. Louis. While we debate where we first met (we both guess it was a Twitterchat), Chris is an active social media user who's doing all the right things. 

Through the use of Snapchat, McManamy puts a face to the world of IT - and has built a strong personal brand in the process. 

This Week on Why I Social, Chris and I discuss:

  • The misconceptions and stereotypes of the IT employee
  • How he's has used Snapchat to give a behind the scenes look at technology and IT
  • His favorite things about St. Louis and what kept him there when he was starting his career. 

And of course, Why Does He Social?!

Carolyn Portanova (@CarolynPortanov) is Communications & Marketing Manager at The Brokerage Resource (Inc). She is also a returning guest as she previously appeared as a panelist during a live episode of Why I Social titled "Parenting In The Social Age". She is a prime example of one of the reasons I started the podcast as her story from sales to social media is one that deserves to be told. 

This Week on Why I Social, Carolyn and I discuss:

  • How she became interested in French Literature
  • The challenges of returning to work after maternity leave

And of course, Why Does She Social?!
