David J. Neff
Senior Digital Strategist
Ridgewood Associates

My name is David J. Neff. I help Non Profits and people for a living. I do that with Ridgewood Associates and Lights. Camera. Help. I also do large scale collaborative events like Non Profit Bar Camp and VideoCamp Austin. I would say that I am a Teacher, Speaker, Blogger, Network Weaver, and Social Media Scientist.

For over 10 years I have done things that have never been done before at Non Profits. This includes launching the American Cancer Society's first software program , building the first ever user generated Web Site for those affected by cancer, and starting their Social Media, Online Giving an Film departments.

I'm currently working on getting my own non profit up and running. It's called Lights. Camera. Help. We help all other non profits focus on good through our film festival, education and the world's first film focused volunteer program.

I was named one of the "Top 20 Social Media People in the state of Texas" by the Austin American Statesman in 2009. The American Marketing Association awarded me the "Non Profit Social Media Marketer of the Year" in 2009. I also was also a past twice recipient of a American Cancer Society Futuring and Innovations grant. I was also a SXSW Dewey Winburne Award Nominee.
