About the Author:

Hi, I'm David Naves. I'm a daddy, hubby and currently live in Auburn California with (1) wife, (2) children, (1) dog, (1) cat, and (6) chickens. I play drums, am an avid fly fisherman a proud chicken nerd, as well as an Arduino enthusiast. I also enjoy using my general contractors license from time to time... even if just to over-build my Arduino Automated Chicken Coop As far as name-dropping and shameless self-promotion, I have over 20 years experience in the web industry and have helped build out Ticketmaster.com, Guess.com, Citysearch.com and DisneyChannel.com to name a few. I've co-founded an Emmy Award Winning Music Editing Firm in Los Angeles (Milky Music) and I hold a Bachelors of Science Degree in Business Administration. I'm passionate about getting Small Business America in to the "Big Game" of SEO and ecommerce, so I founded LocalMarketplace.com™ to do just that. My favorite web host is Acenet, love my Chromebook, and am passionate about learning via Lynda.com. You can typically find me making noise out on Google+, Twitter and Facebook
