I am the Director of Behance (which we sold to Adobe in 2012), the leading online platform to showcase and discover creative work.
Previously, I was the Senior Manager for Global Partnerships at TED, where I created strategic partnerships for TED.com, the TED Conferences, and various other TED properties. I worked with global brands like IBM, GE, Cisco and Intel to tell their stories to the TED community.
Prior to that, I was the Co-Founder and Partner of Industry Digital Media, a digital consultancy that worked with companies, individuals and brands to strengthen their online presence through the use of web analytics, business intelligence and social media. I consulted with successful internet startups, New York Times best-selling authors, and established brands.
I graduated with distinction from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a double major in political science and philosophy.
