My guest this week is Seth Familian, who specializes in connecting powerful web-based tools and services to create highly customized marketing + analytics experiences for product and content marketing teams. He is the founder and principal of Familian&1, a visual insights and automation consultancy whose work has benefitted companies including Cisco, RingCentral, Adorama and Cloud9. Seth is also an avid educator with experience teaching over 800 students in 40+ workshops on Visual Design with Data, Working with Big Data, Digital Tools for Business and Affordable Web Design. He has lectured at General Assembly, Galvanize, Impact HUB SF, Presidio Graduate School, the Haas School of Business and KQED. 

Seth received his MBA from UC Berkeley's Haas School of Business in 2007 and his BA from Harvard University in 2001. He is based in Boulder, CO and works from Galvanize Boulder.
