Technocratic solutions to a communal future, I'm a connector, matchmaker and community-builder. Currently on contract as a corporate recruiter, Openwave Messaging has now joined the Synchronoss family!

Synchronoss (NASDAQ:SNCR) founded in December 2000, is a world leader in cloud solutions and software-based activation serving communication service providers across the globe. 

With 100+ seminal patents, Synchronoss has one of the largest, most comprehensive technology platforms in production, widely used by the largest service providers and their 3 billion-plus mobile subscribers located around the world. Synchronoss’ industry-leading customers include tier 1 service providers such as AT&T Inc., Verizon Wireless and Vodafone, tier 1 cable operators/MSOs such as Cablevision, Charter Communications, Comcast, and Time Warner Cable and large OEMs such as Apple, Microsoft, and Samsung. These customers utilize our platforms, technology and services to service both consumer and business customers, including over 300 of the Fortune 500 companies.

My background has been a blend of technical recruiting, career advising and social media marketing/social media community management. In the developing digital landscape, my interests are to blend the two with social recruiting. As to my extra-curricular activities, I'm a co-founder of the Bay Area Open Source meetup group (bitly.com/bayareaoss), volunteer with SCaLE, the Southern California Linux Expo for the past 5 years, serve on the Board of Directors with a non-profit NPO, www.MercyBeyondBorders.org and also occasionally write for a tech publication, TechZulu.

In addition to classes for both USC Annenberg and LMU, I've also spoken for UCLA Career Week as well as various digital and social media conferences, workshops and seminars. In my past, I have been a proud advocate for Dun & Bradstreet, Lenovo and AT&T affiliates. *For disclosure, from time to time, I am offered products, services and invitations from a variety of brands. I give an honest opinion and only review those that I believe in.

In case it means anything to you, I have held a Klout score that fluctuates from 68-74, have been listed as one of the Top 500 Community Managers on Twitter/blogs by GetLittleBird http://t.co/OX4cGzlAbs and in the Kred Elite Top 1% of influencers.
