Michael P. Turner here. Forty-something years later, I still don’t know what I want to do if I grow up. I was raised around cars and trained in diesel mechanics, ran a successful high-end automotive detail shop in my early 20s, developed and sold my own software for a while shortly thereafter, ran and sold a popular online community/news website when the graphical web had just begun to take root, lead a volunteer K-9 search and rescue team for 10 years during all of that, rode the dot-com wave as a marketing and PR executive during the 90s and 2000s, ran a full-service marketing agency after that, led digital strategy teams at both large and small agencies, ran/run a few popular blogs on various topics, and now (deep breath) I’m doing digital strategy and marketing operations consulting through my company, MarketingMax, and for a long-time client and now employer of mine, UltraTech International.
I dig Jeeps, off-roading and off-road racing, [mostly college] football, photography, flying (but not a pilot), trains (the logistics stuff fascinates me for some odd reason), making EDM, cranking metal, PC gaming, politics, history, and a plethora of other contradictory things.
Instagram is therapy.
I love photography. I also love the challenge of taking good photos on a mobile phone (which is becoming increasingly easier to do). I post lots of random shots of things that intrigue me, things I love, things I find useful, and more.
