Google+ User Experience Enthusiast

Well hello, I'm Ryan Crowe <--this is my LinkedIn profile!

I'm a social media director at an ad agency in St. Louis, active social media blogger, and I also speak (and am available to speak) about social media at online conferences, and also offline conferences!

In addition to my ad agency work, I also am the Director of Social Strategy at LittleBigFund - and I sit on the Board of Directors!

You might enjoy following me if you enjoy conversation about social media, the St. Louis Cardinals, or random nerdy things. If you're wondering why so many people have me in their circles it's because I like to help people out using G+, and I started doing it pretty early! People like the help so much that this stuff happened:
