Deborah Anderson

Former Director of Project Management Office

Connect with the Author: |

Deborah Anderson (aka Deborah E in music circles) was the creator and director of the Internet Marketing Ninjas Project Management Office, to help organize all of the many diversified projects that IMN handled. She is the host of the Social Web Cafe TV weekly "Marketing Momentum" show on iHeart Radio, and host of her weekly WebToolsTV show (interviewing the people behind the brands). She is a social strategy coach, implementing her Masters in Industrial / Organizational psychology and she is co-writing a book with Ileane Smith on internet community-building.

A brief biography of Deborah Anderson

Deborah Anderson wears many hats and her addiction to acquiring knowledge in many areas is demonstrated through her vast experience. From professional training as a sound engineer at what is now the Los Angeles Film School, to graduating summa cum laude in software architecture (and project management) from Capella University (Minneapolis, MN), she often comments that she is only just beginning.

She and her husband Michael have been the "dream team" behind corporate fixes. They started their own hosting company and domain registration services (with the lowest priced domains for a week), "back in the day." Their synergistic way of working together has been requested for "behind the scenes" fixes by those who need to put their best foot forward. This was especially helpful during Deborah's time as director of information technology at the boutique financial firm, Bel Air Investment Advisors, in Beverly Hills, CA, where image and "getting it done right" were a requirement for the high net worth clientele.

Deborah's love of the stage doesn't stop with chart topping jazz music (as Deborah E), but also as host of the Marketing Momentum show on iHeart Radio, a "weekly checkpoint to inspire the marketing momentum that is within you."

In her spare time, she produces curriculum (including the Hangout Queen project, "taking your hangouts to the next level"), and writes books (including a novel!). She is back in her beloved Los Angeles (where she was #1 for over a year on RN jazz charts), getting the groove on and performing with her world-renowned pianist, Richard Green. She has already performed on Sunset Strip in Hollywood, so this is a welcome chance to reconnect with the Los Angeles scene.

Deborah and her husband own Social Web Cafe, a subsidiary of her husband's Seaside Records, with a full video and sound studio. This gives a lot of time to play and produce, and share those tips with others.
