Hello, how can I help you? I've been working on voice and multimodal experiences for more than 20 years. An early innovator in speech and audio experiences, I completed my Master's and Ph.D at the MIT Media Lab. In 1999, I joined the startup Tellme, where we transformed old-school telephone systems into dynamic, internet-fueled, usable and desirable voice experiences. More recently, at Microsoft, I've worked on natural interactions featuring speech and gesture, as well as hands-free experiences.
Why this photo? Great teams build great products. Oh, and I also play ice hockey, and can often be found at the rink with my 11-year old daughter Jessie.
