Caroline McCarthy

I'm the vice president of communications and content at true[x] Media, a digital advertising company that aims to bring the excitement and creativity of the television commercial to the web.

I joined true[x] after spending a year as a freelance editorial director working with both startup and Fortune 500 clients on brand storytelling, event curation, and product launches. I have also worked at Google, leading influencer outreach and event partnerships for Google+, and serving as managing editor of the Think Quarterly brand; and as a journalist and TV commentator for CNET.com, a division of CBS, covering entrepreneurship and digital culture. I was named to Forbes' "30 Under 30 In Media" list in 2012 and twice to Business Insider's "Silicon Alley 100" list.

I serve on the advisory board for Social Media Week NYC; am vice chair of the board of directors at MOUSE, a nonprofit that empowers inner-city students to improve their schools through technology; and am an ambassador for women's outdoors organization Ladies Trekking. I've also done work with Camp Interactive and was a member of their NY Marathon team in 2010. In 2012 I led Google+'s support for Samasource and served on the host committee for their annual gala.

I'm a proud alum of Princeton University, where I majored in history of science and creative writing. I was also a member of the varsity crew team.
