I'm a marketing guy, occasional loudmouth and always funny. Well, I think I'm funny. Just ask. By day, I’m a marketing manager at sitecues in Cambridge, MA but at night I keep on thinking about marketing. It’s a functional obsession.

I’ve been helping companies reach and engage customers for longer than Barak Obama has been in public service, yet I still refuse to be known as one who loves an early bird special. Currently, I’m in charge of messaging for sitecues by Ai Squared, a web-based accessibility tool for people with low vision. As marketing manager, I’ve overseen the company’s rollout, design, and brand strategy for the product. I'm also in charge of Nerf guns, parties and debauchery. I water the plants too. I've been caught repeating jokes a few times.

Maybe it’s the caffeine and Tylenol talking, but I’ve never been content working on just one gig at a time. Heck, my dad retired at age 80. I’ve been a marketing director or consultant for more than a dozen ventures over the years, building brand, messaging, and engagement for everything from military contractors to a college laundry service. I’ve even dabbled in some pirate-themed networking event planning (#100Pirates). My highlight reel includes stints working with Gemvara, influencers@, messageAMP, and Metropolis Creative. I also love to expound on marketing trends and weird news with my blog. I talk a mean game.Before embracing my inner marketer, I was an art teacher at a middle school (marketing is much easier). It took a BFA the Massachusetts College of Art before I could realize my true calling. Now, I don’t have to grade papers, but I do have to write white papers. Hindsight is 20/20, but student loans are forever.

My personal stats: I live in Arlington, Massachusetts near Boston and hate any type of physical exertion. I also dislike dogs and cats, even the allegedly cute ones on the Internet. I’m a creature of habits, and Starbucks is a daily ritual for me. People say "Howard Davidson loves sticking his nose into other people’s business" and I confess it's true. I also have a habit of finding jobs for all my friends, whether they like it or not.

  • 1. Howard Davidson Arlington, MA Marketing Guy – Arlington, MA by Howard Davidson, Arlington, MA Slide By :- Howard Davidson Arlington MA
  • 2. Howard Davidson Arlington, MA Marketing Guy – Arlington, MA Hi, I’m Howard. By day, I’m a marketing manager at sitecues, in Cambridge, MA. By night….well, it depends on the night. I don’t mean to say that you’ll find me donning a Batsuit or planning a bank heist with Ben Affleck, but I’m always involved in some kind of marketing venture in the Boston area or beyond. It’s just in my nature. Slide By :- Howard Davidson Arlington MA
  • 3. I’ve been helping companies reach and engage customers for a long time, more than two decades (I started young, so don’t expect me to send away for my AARP card yet). Currently, I’m in charge of messaging for sitecues by Ai Squared, a web-based accessibility tool for people with low vision. As marketing manager, I’ve been in charge of sitecues’ rollout, overseeing the design and development of company website and sales materials, as well as creating brand strategy for the product. I’m also known as the chief fun office. Well actually, I order food. Slide By :- Howard Davidson Arlington MA
  • 4. You can call it a restless spirit or creative ADHD, but I’ve never been satisfied focusing on just one marketing challenge. I’ve been a marketing director or consultant for more than a dozen ventures over the years, building brand, messaging, and engagement for everything from military contractors to college laundry service. My recent credits include working with Gemvara, influencers@, messageAMP, and Metropolis Creative. I also love to mouth off on marketing quirks and the sublimely ridiculous with my blog. Did you know that I helped plan the #100Pirates event? Slide By :- Howard Davidson Arlington MA
  • 5. I wasn’t born a marketer, although my parents said I could always sweet-talk my way into a higher allowance or a later curfew. For the first part of my professional life, I was an art teacher at a middle school (marketing is much easier). What else can one do with a BFA and MA from the Massachusetts College of Art? Slide By :- Howard Davidson Arlington MA
  • 6. Other random bits about me: I live in Arlington, Massachusetts and hate any type of physical exertion. I dislike dogs, cats, and basically all animals that aren’t on my dinner plate. Starbucks is a food group for me, and I am damn opinionated and quick to pass judgment. My friends say that I have this nasty habit of finding them jobs. Why should I be the only person who works?
