For All You Social Media Neophytes- Listen To My Boy Ryan Pinkham- The Man Knows His Stuff
Ryan Pinkham just graduated from Northeastern with a marketing degree. He is a local man done good and believe me when I tell you he knows his social media marketing.
Ryan is part of a group of young Gloucester adults who have restored faith in the youth of our city. There are a group of young men and women in their early 20’s in town that I’ve been completely blown away by in the past year as to how much they have their shit together. Educated, well dressed, well mannered, responsible hard working people that make me think that as good as it is right now in Gloucester, the best is yet to come if people like this are our future.
There seems to be a whole group of them, people like Rebecca Linquata, Erica Mitchell, Joe LaRocca, Mike Torres, Ty Rogers, Jon Vizena, Shannon McCarthy, Steven Fletcher, Lily Linquata, Austin Souza, Liv Hauck, David Brooks, Dawn Gadow, the list goes on and on… all really good people that have made me think that the future is really looking bright if these are our future leaders.
