Detailed Description

Update

As an entrepreneur with a focus on Business Development, my experience has given me the opportunity to be at the intersection of technology, digital media and entertainment. I recently left Scopely (a fast-growing mobile gaming company) to work on my new start up (details coming soon). Prior to Scopely, I Co-Founded Viddy, a mobile social video app that quickly grew to 45+ million users within 12 months of launch. At Viddy, I oversaw strategy, marketing, and product partnerships.


Prior to Viddy, I led business development at Ad.ly, an LA-based start-up that connects brands and advertisers with consumers via the social media channels of the most influential artists, athletes and entertainers. From 2005 to 2008, I served as Director of Business Development at Doppelganger, where I secured deals with major media and consumer product brands to populate a music and entertainment-based virtual world for teens. I have also held positions in gaming and entertainment companies, including Activision and Paramount Pictures. 

As an active member of the LA/NY/SF entrepreneur community, I am an advisor and angel investor in several exciting start-ups including Songza, Code.org, Beyond Meat, RadPad, and Quiet.ly as well as established companies such as Box, and Glam Media. I have been named to the Vanity Fair Next Establishment list, Social Media Week’s Social 25 and have been recognized as one of LA’s up and coming entrepreneurs by Pando Daily.

I received a Bachelor of Arts in History from University of California at Los Angeles and an M.B.A. from the Graziadio School of Business at Pepperdine University.
