About Me

Hey there! I'm Tony Bowler an independent advertising and marketing contractor currently living in Houston, Texas. I started my career in 2009 when I graduated from Texas State University with a degree in Advertising and I'm currently pursuing a second bachelor's degree in Digital Media Innovations.

Whether it be blogging, podcasting, writing, recording music, doing performance art, or just posting pictures on Instagram, I've always been enamored by the directions web media has gone in over the years. I am excited to find more new and different ways for people interact and express themselves online.

I take great pride in my work as a freelance media professional and I enjoy living out my passion for helping entrepreneurs, business owners, and other social media influencers develop and grow their personal and professional brands.
