Thanks for reading the blog and wanting to make a connection, I really appreciate it. I try to respond to any legitimate requests for help or information, but it won't always be immediate.

To set appropriate expectations, see the bottom of this page for expectations around contact times.

Below you'll find a variety of ways to reach me, they're in order of the most to least effective, but I try to be available at all of them.


This is the easiest way to reach me for most people.

Twitter: @robpickering

Due to my position I spend a lot of time on Twitter, I'd love it if you followed me there. I also have DMs open to those who do not follow me, so you can use this method to reach me. Due to the nature of Twitter, I may not see every @mention, so DMs are best for initial contact.

LinkedIn: robertapickeringjr

My professional background is listed on LinkedIn, but I only link to people with whom I've worked. There are a couple of exceptions, but that is the rule. I may respond to IN messages, but if I'm not currently linked to you it's unlikely.

Skype: pickerin

I use Skype rarely, but it's occasionally useful, feel free to add me, but I only log in when I have a scheduled meeting.

Signal: Signal

This is my go to for encrypted communications. You'll need my personal mobile number to enable a communication channel, once we talk via one of the other methods, we can exchange numbers.
