What Can Forrest

I can offer my services to help businesses develop their digital marketing, social media or community strategy.  I am fluent in the current digital marketing & B2B social trends and methodologies but my primary skill set is applying that knowledge to your specific business challenges.  I am a creative problem-solver.

I am currently serving in a contract capacity and have limited bandwidth to take on additional smaller projects.  These projects could include web development, freelance writing, social media management, training development, etc.

While I am not currently actively searching for a new position, I am always open to new opportunities.  The type of position that would definitely turn my head is one in an agency environment or working on a wide variety of projects in a fast-paced & demanding environment.
