Matthew Knell is a social media marketer, web technologist, community evangelist, and communications professional with a long history designing, developing, and marketing a wide array of successful digital products including a patented pay-per-click advertising system for About.com, the first social media strategies for JetBlue Airways, a social media platform for MTV Networks and social media marketing distribution strategies for CafeMom.

He is a proud graduate of Pace University’s Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems, and serves as a Tech Mentor in Residence there. Currently, he is the Social Media Director at AOL. He also teaches Social Media and Web Marketing at NYU’s School of Continuing and Professional Studies.

He finds it very awkward to write in the third person, so why not just find him geeking out on social media, NYC History, or sports on his blog, Twitter or Tumblr.
