Jordan Viator

Convio

In my role as Interactive Communications Manager at Convio, I manage the Connection Cafe blog, all things new media related 2009 NTENny Winnerincluding our social media sites as well as all Convio Web sites. An Internet-addicted, new media loving communications professional, I'm always eager to learn about the latest and greatest in interactive communications and online marketing.  The ability to pair my work in online communications with helping our nonprofit clients in the process makes my job even more fulfilling.

In my spare time, you can usually find me spending time outdoors in an Austin water hole with my two pups, gardening, curling up and reading a great book, playing a competitive game of Wii bowling or watching the long list of programs I regularly schedule to record on my DVR. 

And true to my NTENy award -- you can always find me on Twitter at @jordanv
