Background

Summary

I have a real passion for technology and an insatiable curiosity about the ways it's fundamentally changing how we live and work.

Bringing more than 16 years of experience across start-ups, agency and Fortune 15, I understand what it takes to get things done in any size company. I thrive in a creative, fast-paced, collaborative work environment, which is exactly what I've found at LinkedIn.

I'm currently leveraging my passion for social and marketing chops to help our enterprise clients more effectively leverage the power of the LinkedIn platform to strengthen and promote their talent brand and attract top talent.

Prior to LinkedIn, I headed up marketing, communications, PR, social media and lead generation programs for Tracx, a growing SaaS social media management and analytics start-up based here in NYC.

During my 4 1/2 year stint at HP, I drove global public relations, executive communications and social media programs for its printing, networking, server, security and early cloud computing businesses.

My PR agency years gave me the incredible opportunity to work across a very broad range of technologies and industries, as well as learn how to switch gears effectively. My clients included: wireless sensor network chip pioneer Dust Network, network security provider SonicWall, hi-def wireless audio chip maker STS Wireless, wireless HD video chip maker Amimon and I helped drive thought leadership for law firm Fenwick & West. Also led programs for Penthera, Dimatix, eGain, iPass, NetXen, Visionael, SenSage, SRI International (formerly Stanford Research Institute) and Amazon.

I began my marketing career driving communications programs for 7 years at both a SaaS start-up that provided online automation tools for eBay sellers, as well as a mid-sized company that built voice-enabled applications, General Magic, founded by early Apple folks.

From 2002 to 2003, I also had the amazing opportunity to work from my companies' overseas office in Bangalore, India.
