Jonathon Colman isn't ignoring you, he's just really, really introverted. Despite this, he's a Webby Award-winning content strategist at Facebook, the social network. Yeah, he’s surprised by that, too.

Jonathon served overseas in the Peace Corps, has spoken at tech events on five continents (next up: Antarctica!), and graduated from the University of Washington with a master’s degree in information management.

All that makes him a nerd, but don't worry—he's one of the good ones. You can find Jonathon on Facebook or Twitter @jcolman.
