About Me

by Dave

Dave WirschingI have been active in Internet and online activities since the early 1990’s while a contractor with the Department of Defense.   Drawn into the world of social media and blogging in late 2006 while managing the online marketing activates for my wife’s local business, my first blog launched in the spring of 2007.  Not long after that I began my journey into the worlds of Facebook and Twitter.

Drawing on my background in consulting, technology, and marketing coupled with a hands-on approach to technology, I work with clients to achieve marketing success through education, content creation, and optimization for “new media” – web sites, social networks, blogs, email, and online advertising.

I am the principal member and founder of Why About Marketing.  I am also an owner of an independent Title Insurance Agency in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania where I continue to lead their online and offline marketing efforts.

Prior to becoming an entrepreneur, my last “real job” was a Managing Director in BearingPoint’s (formerly KPMG Consulting) Communications and Content practice.  Throughout my consulting career, I have  provided technology, customer care, and marketing solutions to a variety of clients and industries while with Electronic Data Systems and Booz-Allen & Hamilton.

Prior to consulting, I served as a Commissioned Officer in the US Navy.  I am a graduate of Cornell University and hold a Masters Degree in Information Technology from The George Washington University.

I reside in Suburban Pennsylvania with my wife, daughter and an irrepressible Schnoodle.
