A strategic storyteller with a marketing background, I bring a unique blend of creativity and technical know-how to my work. With two decades of experience in marketing, content creation, journalism, and project management, I am a results-driven professional.
In 2021, I co-founded “The Created Economy” podcast, exploring innovation in the creator space.
Recently, I was Flipboard’s Assistant Managing Editor where I spent nearly five years leading the editorial team’s technology, science, COVID-19, social justice and gaming news coverage through curation, email newsletters and special projects.
Prior to that, I reported on innovations within Silicon Valley as a journalist for media outlets The Next Web and VentureBeat, chronicling developments by Facebook/Meta, Twitter, Apple, Microsoft, Google/Alphabet, Salesforce, startups, venture capitalists and more.
As a content creator, I crafted compelling narratives that engage and inform audiences, be it a blog post, video, report, email, or event. And as a project manager, I drove marketing initiatives from concept to launch with the production of complex websites, delivered email marketing, online advertising and social media campaigns, and orchestrated app builds for my clients.
My portfolio includes work for companies in tech, telecommunications, travel and hospitality, pharmacology, retail, education, and finance.
