I work at Twitter as a Product Manager in our Data Business (Gnip). Previously, I led Product Marketing for TVxTwitter and our video product suite, and before that I advised political, retail and entertainment clients on Twitter Ads strategy.

Before joining Twitter, I was a Search Strategist at Red Bricks Media, a digital agency in NYC, and prior to that, I was Assistant Director of the Columbia Institute for Tele-Information at Columbia Business School, where I led a team of researchers studying technology trends and media economics.

I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Wheaton College in Massachusetts, where I wrote my honors thesis on RFID and Privacy. After college, I spent a year as a Fulbright Scholar in Estonia, where my research focused on the socio-political implications of wireless development in the region.

When I'm not working, I'm exploring San Francisco and beyond. Follow along below!
