Joey Blanco, Customer Storyteller
Like all good stories, Joey Blanco's starts with dinosaurs. Jurassic Park opened his eyes to the power of a good narrative, setting him on a path that led not to cloning extinct species, but instead to sharing customer journeys. As Zapier's Customer Storyteller, Joey chats with Zapier's user base, learning about their efficiencies, tips, and tricks—and then shares them wide in a story. If he's not writing a story, odds are Joey's playing bass, defending the semi-colon, or corralling his two dogs. A few of Joey's articles:
