Facebook Walls Are Not An Open Invitation For You to Attack

  Love it or hate it, Facebook is part of our lives. Even with all the other technology we have in our lives, most of us learn news from our family and friends on Facebook. As it becomes more integrated into our daily lives, it is apparent that it has also warped our basic human interactions. The...

An Autumn Weekend at Vermont’s Hermitage Club

Autumn is my favorite time of year in New England. The crispness in the air and exploding colors of the woods always makes me smile as I soak up every moment of it before Old Man Winter decides to roll into town. So when the invite came from The Hermitage Club to bring my family up and...

ITS Tactical Muster IV in My Words

Growing up in the Boy Scouts, I've kept their motto as my own long beyond the last time I wore the uniform. "Be Prepared" means a lot of things. To me, being prepared means having the mental state to cope, knowledge to solve or skills to deal with whatever the world throws at you on any...

Teenager Technology Gifts

I hate to think about it, but the holidays are right around the corner and the other night my wife turned to me and asked, "Any ideas on what we are going to get the kids for Christmas?" Since my kids don't read my blog, I figured a quick post to give you ideas of great...

When Will Pandemics Get the Attention They Deserve?

(photo credit: Asylum Entertainment) Last year the world watched in horror as an Ebola outbreak spread across part of the African continent. Through my work with ONE, I was well educated in what was going on, how it is spread and proper level of concerns. Sadly though, I wonder if enough people realize that it is isn't...

Doing My Part to Help Save the Children

This morning began for me by attending a fundraising breakfast for a local charity. While this was happening, I knew that a team from Save the Children would be kicking off a new campaign to raise funds for their efforts in Afghanistan by telling the story of a little girl named Karima.* After years of war and severe poverty, combined...

Using Photography to Drive Social Change

Last week, I took the stage to speak at my first photography conference. Pix 2015 was an amazing event full of inspiring speakers, great photographers and enough photography gear to make your head spin. Samsung was a Gold Sponsor of the event and brought several of us Imageloggers out to Seattle to take part in the...

Fun Times and Financial Learning at The Topsfield Fair

The Topsfield Fair is a New England tradition and one that after all these years I finally got to experience for myself. Sadly, the day started off wet and cold and we were not sure if we’d be able to make it or not. Thankfully Mother Nature decided to cooperate and as Emily and I...

America, We Have a Gun Problem

Yesterday, another ten people were shot and killed while attending classes in Oregon. Before the end of the year (sadly probably even the month) there will be more innocent people killed by someone angry and armed somewhere in America. The statistics around gun violence in America hurt to see. Guns have a place in our society. I grew up...

Sketch of C.C. Chapman by Hey Instigator!There are many aspects OF who I am and what I do. Putting together THIS PAGE is one of my least favorite things to write, because talking about myself is not my idea of a fun time.

When asked what I do my current answer is, “I create, teach and motivate people to do more good in the world.”

Of course, that doesn’t cover all that I work on professionally and personally, so that is why I created this page.

Official bios and head shots can be found below.

Who is C.C. Chapman? I’m a…

Marketing Consultant

With over twenty years of marketing, online media and community building experience I have the skills and experience to help your organization no matter the size. Previous clients have included The Coca-Cola Company, American Eagle Outfitters and HBO.

I focus on social good/impact marketing, content marketing and brand strategy. My favorite clients are NGOs, nonprofits or brands looking to make a difference in the world.

Feel free to double check my credentials on LinkedIn.


I’m constantly writing and always working on my next book. You may have read some of my published works including Amazing Things Will HappenContent Rules or 101 Steps to Making Video Like a Pro.

Freelance writing or citizen reporting assignments excite me.


If I had to choose a style, I’d say my photos are a mix of documentary, travel and lifestyle photography. While I may not enjoy taking head shots, I love to shoot faces. I rarely go anywhere without a camera in my hand and I’ve been fortunate to see my photos on the pages of Rolling Stone and The Wall Street Journal.

I’m currently shooting with a Samsung NX1 and a Chroma 4k Drone.

My photos can be found on InstagramFlickr and 500px.

Keynote Speaker

I’m happiest when on stage educating and inspiring an audience of any size, anywhere in the world.

I have spoken at everything from large international events, corporate retreats and at special gatherings of unique individuals. If you need someone who will inspire, educate and entertain your audience I’d love to chat.

Advocate & Volunteer

I believe in using my skills, time and voice to champion causes that are important to me. I’m especially interested in anything military, dogs or children focused.

I’m currently the President of the Board at Wediko, a member of the ONE Girls & Women Advisory Board, serve on the board of The Hockey Foundation and recently joined the No Kid Hungry Social Council.


I’ve developed and taught courses for Lynda.com, CreativeLive and Treehouse. I’m also an Adjunct Professor of Marketing at Bentley University and hoping to do more teaching in the future.


On top of all that I’m a proud life long New Englander who was born and raised in New Hampshire, but now resides outside of Boston.

I married my high school sweetheart, have two amazing kids and love being a dad.

I’ve been online since 1989, began blogging in 2002 and podcasting in 2004.

Previous endeavors I created include Accident Hash, Passion Hit TV, Digital Dads and The Advance Guard.

Tattoos, travel and the outdoors turn me on. There are fewer things more perfect than a well done cocktail, a delicious meal or live art of any sort. I love my GORUCK, Field Notes and am a proud Misfit.

To understand me is to understand that I try to live a purposeful life every day that is full of adventure, love and making the world around me a better place for all.

Fun Bio

You’d be hard-pressed to find a more multi-faceted or enthusiastic creative/strategic partner in the marketing and content creation fields. This greatly hails from C.C.’s unstoppable combination of marketing experience and savvy (which a great many professionals claim to have), and incalculably valuable “on the ground” knowledge and insight as an influential content creator himself (which a great many professionals do not). The result is a best-of-both-worlds mashup of marketing expertise.

C.C. Chapman sports the pro cred to be a talker (working closely with such clients as American Eagle Outfitters, Coca-Cola, HBO and Warner Bros.), and the passion and gumption to be a doer (creating content for the emerging Online Dad market, marketing professionals, music fans and more). He’s helped create, manage and execute ambitious online and offline marketing campaigns for startups and multinationals — and has the invaluable good sense to know which outreach strategies work with audiences, and which ones fall flat.

He authoritatively speaks your language. He speaks your CMO’s language. Most important, he’s fluent in your market’s language. It’s a killer double-chocolate-and-peanut-butter combination. Contact C.C. to learn how he can help your organization achieve its business goals. There’s even more to know about C.C. Chapman, if you want to read it — and you should. C.C.’s skills are an embarrassment of riches.

I’m involved with a lot of organizations and clients. I believe in being completely transparent and open about everything I’m working on. I’ll do my best to keep this updated and of course will clearly disclose relationships in any post that require them.

I am open to being pitched and invited on press trips.

Companies do send me items in the hopes that I will review it or share with my community. If you send me something it does not guarantee a review.

With that in mind, my mailing address is:

9 C Medway Road #117
Milford, MA

Current relationships include:

  • Verizon FiOS provides me with service in exchange for a monthly post on technology of my choosing
  • Member of the Verizon Wireless VZWBuzz Influencer Team which means I receive electronics to review and experiences to take part in.
