A journalist for more than 30 years, Duane spent 10 years working for newspapers before surfing the World Wide Web for 15 years with Turner. In 2015, he launched doubleDmedia and Enlighten Marketing to help content creators and businesses create engaging – and lasting – relationships with audiences.
As a freelance writer and marketing business owner, Duane is uniquely qualified to cut through the “word salad” that often muddies the waters when businesses and content creators team up to launch an internet platform, social media program, or email marketing campaign.
Duane and wife Mandy have four children – two boys, two girls – and live on his maternal grandparents’ once-upon-a-time tobacco farmstead. They while away the time herding animals and snapping shots of the incredible natural surroundings. (He also collects sports and pop culture memorabilia, which his wife finds amusing – and aggravating.)
