Amanda V. Duncan

I'm a Montanan who skedaddled to Seattle, then cruised to California (bay area).

I've spent the last decade doing communications and marketing for some awesome companies. Currently, I'm part of the Media Relations team at Microsoft.

Before that, I worked at Brit + Co, an online media and e-commerce platform focused on enabling creativity among women and girls. There, I helped host an annual Re:Make event in San Francisco, created a yearly report on the State of the Maker Movement, and launched a book.

Before that, I worked at Nokia, managing Internal Communications for North America. I helped launch 13 smartphones across 9 carriers in the USA and Canada. Working for a global company, I got to go to amazing places, like Abu Dhabi and Helsinki, Finland. I also helped announce the Microsoft acquisition in September 2013.

When I'm not at work, I'm traveling, shooting sporting clays, skiing when I can find the snow, trying a new sushi place or sipping some small batch bourbon. I love all things design and actually enjoy cleaning out my closet.
