Emergent media / User experience / Social media

I’m a Toronto based web consultant who helps organizations and professionals use the Internet to connect with and engage their communities. I help plan, design, pull and flip switches towards new initiatives such as website redesigns, social media plans and email marketing. I can often be found attending new media events and tweet @matthewburpee. Please see my LinkedIn for more about my professional background.

I’m currently working for entrepreneurs and small organizations. I recently finished a contract at Concordia University where I replaced the web lead and implemented a large web redesign and social media plan.

Please enter my blog about professional and personal topics. There are also mashups building my online activity feed here. Before looking at any of these you may want to go out and have fun instead. Really. Still here? Ok, here’s some bookmarks, books, events, locations, music, photos, presentations, travels, videos, and visualizations.

There are at least five other Matthew Burpee’s in North America so just in case I’m the one in the photo at top left. Speaking of Burpees’s: about the name.

It’s always nice to hear from someone who has visited here, so feel free to contact me or connect via your preferred social network. Suggestions are welcome too. The best ideas are not always obvious.
