Rick AllenRick Allen has worked in higher education for more than twelve years, helping to shape web communications and content strategy. As principal of ePublish Media, Inc., a web publishing and content strategy consultancy in Boston, Mass., Rick works with knowledge-centric organizations to create and sustain effective web content.

With a background in writing, publishing, and technology innovation—and a passion for the web—Rick strives to improve online user experiences in higher education through content strategy.

Rick writes and speaks often on web publishing topics, advocating for a “content first” approach to the web in support of communications, design, development and governance. Rick believes no one on the web can do great work if the content stinks — therefore, every web professional has a stake in making the content better.

To grab Rick’s attention, just hit him up about content, communications, usability, measurement, web standards, or good coffee. Mmm, coffee.
