Ian Lurie

Ian Lurie is Chief Marketing Curmudgeon and President at Portent, Inc, a firm he started in 1995. Portent is a full-service internet marketing company whose services include SEO, SEM and strategic consulting.

Ian rants and raves, with a little teaching mixed in, on his company's blog. He recently co-published the Web Marketing for Dummies All In One Desk Reference. In it, he wrote the sections on SEO, blogging, social media and web analytics.

His educational background includes a B.A. in History from UC San Diego and a degree in Law from UCLA. Along the way, he's been an amateur competitive cyclist, a bike messenger, a roof consultant, a technical writer and an Adobe FrameMaker consultant. You may find him teaching his kids to play D&D on the weekends, or dragging his tongue on the ground as he pedals his way up Seattle's ridiculously steep hills.

In his spare time, he attends and speaks at various online marketing conferences, including SMX, Pubcon and Blogworld.
