WHO DOES THIS “GUY” THINK HE IS?

Guy [as in “guillotine”…] LeCharles Gonzalez is an old/new media pragmatist. Sometimes loud, formerly poet, always opinionated.

Professionally, he’s worked in the publishing industry for over 20 years and has done a little bit of everything but writing and marketing are his main passions. He’s also a published poet and occasional journalist, former National Poetry Slam champion, and the co-founder of a little bit louder / The louderARTS Project.

Personally, he’s a father, husband, writer, reader, poet, gamer, runner, long-suffering (and currently casual) NY Mets fan, and recent soccer convert via World Cup 2014 (USWNT, New York Red Bulls), who prefers IPAs, sours or a good Bourbon above all others… although a nice Malbec will do in a pinch.

He can be rather outspoken at times and does not suffer fools gladly, so nothing on this site is meant to be representative of his employers — past, present or future.

You can also find him on Twitter and LinkedIn, among other places. (Facebook is for real-life family and close friends, so don’t be offended if your unexpected friend request or private message is ignored.)
