About me

I am the Editorial Director at AdMonsters, a company dedicated to informing, educating and fostering a community for digital media professionals through events and insightful website content. In addition to programming conference content, I write magazine-style feature stories on the biggest trends in digital advertising, including all the flavors of programmatic, mobile and viewability. Feel free to contact me at gdunaway@admonsters.com.

I honed my knowledge of digital advertising as the senior editor for Adotas.com, a trade website focused on the interactive advertising industry. Before that, I was an editor at TheStreet.com, fine-tuning the writing of numerous financial thought leaders, including chairman Jim Cramer.

In my other life, I'm guitarist and singer, most notably leading the rock band Libel (libeltheband.com ) -- feel free to download a copy of our latest album over at libel.bandcamp.com. I also play in The Jaguar Club – www.jaguarclubofnyc.net I've played in more bands than I remember, including The Alphabetical Order and The Art of Shooting.
