Pets, Animals & Social Media by Ron Callari

Welcome to my Homepage. As a freelance writer and editorial cartoonist, my published work explores current trends on the digital horizon, social media, humor, politics and innovation. I treat global geo-political issues with the same weight of importance as cartoons and Twitter.

Also keenly interested in the safety of our pets, and will be writing here about various issues pertinent to pet travel, pet innovation and how social media intersects with the pet world. 

Ron has also been a contributing writer for InventorSpot - the most popular invention site in the world, where he focuses on social media issues and evolving technology.

In a world where we are barraged daily by data overload, I try to cut through the clutter by delivering new insights with off-center, but hopefully insightful commentary.  Your comments and feedback are always welcome.
