• I am a Senior Director at Adobe, overseeing the Behance P&L, team & product roadmap. I acted as Behance's COO prior to our acquisition by Adobe in 2012. 

    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. TED is about the power of storytelling; I worked with global brands like IBM, GE, Cisco and Intel to tell their stories to the global 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. Through my company, I consulted with successful internet startups, New York Times best-selling authors, and established corporations.

    I graduated with distinction from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a double major in political science and philosophy.
