Christian McKinney's Summary

Hi there.
My name is Christian McKinney, and I'm the Digital Content Director of WALB-TV in Albany, GA.

Right now my biggest focus is:

+Content Management
+Social Media Strategy
+User Experience
+Branding

My drive is for all things digital. Everything I produce is tailored for maximum exposure, whether it is over the internet, live via satellite, microwave, or cell network streaming.

When I'm not dreaming of shredding powder on my snowboard or making photo art, I write commercials and marketing campaigns for fun. I'm fascinated by mobile application technologies.
