Though Ted grew up in North Western Pennsylvania, he moved to Silicone Valley in 1979 where he began working with some really great companies such as Cellular One. When the market crashed with the Dot.com boom, Ted’s job, like many others, disappeared. Switching gears, Ted became interested in using social media as a grounds for connecting with people to propel himself forward.

More recently, however, he has gained recognition for writing the book, The Ultimate Guide to LinkedIn for Business: How to Get Connected with 130 Million Costumers in 10 Minutes, and migrating towards that area of expertise. Ted feels most comfortable in connecting to people with whom he can build relationships. This is where he finds true passion.
