Dave Schaefer

My work experience fits into two parts: newspaper writer and interactive digital marketing.

Part 1 — After graduating from the University of Colorado with a degree in journalism, I was a sports writer and columnist for the Boulder Daily Camera for five years where I covered everything from little league baseball to the NFL playoffs. My main beats included the Denver Broncos for three years (just prior to the Super Bowls) and CU men’s basketball. I covered all the other Denver and CU teams, of course, and even wrote a book on the history of CU football.

Part 2 — I transitioned into website writing and design and worked for the U.S. Olympic Committee through the 1998 Olympic Winter Games in Nagano, Japan. I moved on to the U.S. Figure Skating Association, where I had 100 percent responsibility for the web operations. I married and moved to the great state of Georgia where I have worked at ActiveParks.org—an online registration site for parks and recreation activities—and at Game & Fish Magazines, serving as the online editor for 30 regional hunting and fishing magazines and one national deer hunting publication. Currently, I am the Manager, E-Strategy at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, one of the nations’s top pediatric hospitals.

And along the way, I have appreciated the opportunity to develop web sites for small businesses and organizations. Please contact me to discuss how I can help with your project.
