1. Soccer Balls and Caxirolas

    Who would send a soccer ball and a few caxirolas? Google, of course. Google enjoys sending their advertising partners fun stuff, and this time is no different. The inflatable palm tree (still sitting next to my desk) has been my favorite so far, but the caxirolas might take the title. Thanks Google!

  2. Responsive Web Design Presentation for User Experience Group

    I recently had the pleasure of speaking at the Connecticut User Experience Professionals Association about Responsive Web Design. There was great interest in this topic and it was a lot of fun discussing RWD with so many knowledgable web professionals.

  3. A Google Beach Party Without The Beach


    I couldn’t join the 11,000 creatives in the South of France for the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, so Google brought the beachy vibe to Connecticut. As usual the Google Engage for Agencies team sent something fun. This time it was a beach party pack (including a palm tree). After the Cannes Lions Festival viewing party this party pack will be reused for a local presentation I’m giving on Search Engine Marketing. Thanks Google!

  4. Presentation on New Tools For Modern Web Design


    I am a huge fan of responsive web design, and I’m always looking to learn more about new and updated tools to make the process more efficient. Many of the Adobe Edge tools help designing for a modern browser much easier with better results. I gave a 2 hour presentation to a Hartford, CT design group on Edge Animate, Edge Code, Edge Inspect, Edge Reflow, Edge Web Fonts, and Business Catalyst. There is a lot of interest in the design community to learn more about these tools, but it’s often difficult to take the time to figure out where to begin. Hopefully I helped clear up some of the confusion.

  5. Video Series On Responsive Web Design

  6. Thrise at Adobe Boston Camp 2013


    I was honored when invited to present at the Adobe Boston Camp this year. I was asked to give a presentation on Adobe Business Catalyst and what it can offer designers and web professionals. It was a challenge fitting everything in the time I was given - I could talk Business Catalyst all day. Fortunately I was given an area after the presentation where attendees could ask me specific questions. I pleasantly surprised at how many attendees wanted to learn more. Many didn’t realize what Business Catalyst was capable of accomplishing for a freelancer, web agency, or business owner.

  7. BC Gurus Interview at Adobe MAX 2013


    Adobe MAX 2013 was an amazing experience, and probably my favorite Adobe MAX yet. One of the highlights was being interviewed by Brent Weaver of BC Gurus. We discuss Business Catalyst, BC Sandpile, and other random stuff. You can watch the full interview here: Scott Reynolds of Thrise at Adobe MAX 2013

  8. Google Engage Catalyst NYC 2013


    Because Thrise is a Google Adwords Certified Partner I was invited to spend the day at the New York City Google office learning about new features in Adwords, Analytics, YouTube, Google Trends, and more. Google is always looking to share tips and best practices with their partners, and today was no exception. I never walk away from Google Engage events disappointed. 


  9. Business Catalyst’s Most Underrated Feature


    I had the pleasure of presenting at the BC Sandpile to offer my opinion on why I think the Customer Service Ticketing feature in Business Catalyst has been overlooked. I explain what it is, how to use it, and give some tips on how to enhance it.

  10. Presentation On Adobe Business Catalyst

    I’m originally from Framingham Massachusetts, so presenting for a group of web professionals at the Staples Headquarters in Framingham was a trip down memory lane. There was a great response to the Business Catalyst presentation and at least one person signed up to be a BC Partner that night.
