My name Greg Goodson, and I currently reside in Atlanta, GA. I graduated from Georgia Tech in December 2006 with a degree in Business Management with certificates in Marketing and Operations Management. After working at a company called 360i – a digital online agency with a strong emphasis in search engine marketing (SEM, SEO, Social Media, etc.) for a year and a half, I packed up and relocated to Park City, UT to pursue a job in the marketing department at Backcountry.com, specifically with the search engine marketing team. After 24 months of working in the shadows of the beautiful Wasatch mountains, I decided to relocate back to Atlanta in April of 2010 to focus on some independent projects as well as focus more on my internet marketing consulting gig at Sawtooth Media. I am also the co-founder of a startup called Rafflecopter.com.
When I am not working, I keep up with many different hobbies. My first hobby is running; I have over 25 ultra-marathons (any footrace that is over 26.2 miles marathon distance – usually 50K, 50M, 100K, and 100M runs) under my belt, as well as 5+ marathons (3:08 personal best), and numerous shorter distance races. I also play a mean bluegrass guitar. I follow my Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets religiously (both football and basketball).
I consider myself an outdoorsy kinda guy – hiking, backpacking, trail-running, camping, etc. Just about all of my vacation days from 2007 to present were used to visit locations in Virginia, NC, TN, and WV – running races, backpacking, skiing, etc. The most memorable adventure was a 10 day trip out to Montana’s Glacier National Park in August/September of 2007.
If I am not outside doing something, which I usually am, I am inside, browsing the internet, either networking in some fashion, or trying find opportunities to work for myself. I enjoy blogging, but I bought GregGoodson.com and GregoryGoodson.com with the intention to develop it before another Greg Goodson out there decided to. I am happy I made this move!
I plan on using this blog to share pictures, videos, and my latest adventures with family and friends, as well as network with other professionals in my field. I am ranked 1st in Google for the term “Greg Goodson”. Sadly, this is a big deal to me. I am always on the lookout for more inbound links.
