Meet the NTEN Community
The NTEN Community is full of great folks. Here are just a few of them.
Eve’s 14 years of online visual design, user experience and creative management in both the corporate and nonprofit sectors makes her either a quirky dinner party guest or a font of random knowledge. Either way, as Creative Director at Beaconfire Consulting, she’s responsible for all aspects of the design process from start to finish. When not helping make the world a better place (one website at a time), Eve is an Adjunct Professor of web design at The American University School of Communication, volunteers with her therapy dog Max, and wears an inordinate amount of black.
Chad is the Internet Marketing Manager for Blackbaud, where he wrangles corporate website content, develops social media strategy, and manages email marketing, communities, and search engine optimization. He's the editor-in-chief of Blackbaud Blogs, where he also writes Webby Things. He hosts and produces The Baudcast, which brings together industry experts from around the sector to discuss nonprofit technology. In 2007, Chad founded Go Green Charleston, a technology-focused nonprofit helping Charleston-area residents connect, stay informed, and mobilize around the local sustainability community. When he's not mainlining the web, you'll probably find Chad playing with my kids, skateboarding, taking photos, or enjoying mother nature.

And yes, that is the NTEN book in Sasha's hands in the picture!
Eric is an interactive marketing consultant at Northridge Interactive, specializing in Web Analytics, Organic Search Engine Optimization, and Pay-Per-Click Management. His interest in online marketing was sparked in 2001 while working for an Atlanta area web marketing firm where he learned the benefits of marketing to achieve concrete results. A results-driven Google Certified AdWords Professional, Eric has engaged in Adwords and Google Grants Management for a number of nonprofit clients while at Northridge Interactive. Eric contributes regularly to the Online Marketing Council and was recently elected to the position of Vice Chair of the Web Analytics committee. Eric began his career as a paratrooper in the U.S. Army -- but now the color of his parachute is "marketing". Eric is getting married this spring and hopes his wife will embrace his eclectic loves of practicing Wing Chun Kung Fu, wearing out his copy of Halo 3, and heavily consuming internet marketing reads. He hopes the salsa dancing will help in this regard.
