Dubie's bio

"Dubie is a free spirited individual with a wonderful, creative mind and a unique approach to life. I've had the pleasure of working with her closely for almost three years and in this time I have gotten to know an inspiring, sharp witted person, and also someone who is able to handle delicate issues with great sensibility. Dubie is quick, efficient and highly resourceful. She has something that I've always admired in people: a heart to dream and the courage to make her dreams come true. I hope our paths will cross again in the future."-Paulo Coelho (Author, 150 million books in over 150 countries)Summary:

Having been online since 1992, I am a veteran Internet user with a great passion for all that's new and innovative, so in effect an Internet Start Ups specialist. My biggest talent lies in brand creation, content execution and community development. I enjoy the process of setting up a brand's presence and building a successful and sustainable online community around it.

My background is in publishing, writing, editing, and literary promotion, where I have more than 20 years of professional experience. As an online publisher and a blogger, I have always been interested in original and innovative web tools, and experimenting with online communities and networks, so my transition to Social Media was inevitable. I am well versed in all major and alternative social media networks, but I consider myself a real expert on the three big ones: Facebook, Twitter and Google+.

Having had the privilege to grow up all over the world and live in many different countries and continents, I've been able to develop a huge global network of real friends and associates, which can be an asset to any globally oriented project. If you have a project that is still unheard of, then I'd be very interested in working with you!
