I've spent the past 10+ years immersed in digital technologies, brand management and social media, and am currently Executive Director of Brand and Audience Development for KQED, bringing NPR and PBS to Northern California.

Prior to KQED, I was Director of Social Media with Everybody At Once, an agency specializing in directing, educating and implementing audience development and social media strategy.

My favorite thing is translating complex ideas into user-friendly actions that make it easier for people to connect over the things they love.



I have consulted and contributed audience-building strategy for some well-known entertainment brands including BBC America, CMT, Discovery, Starz, SundanceTV, WNYC, and for professional sports team AS Roma. 

Prior to working with KQED and Everybody At Once, I was the Editor-in-Chief of My Damn Channel, one of the first online entertainment studios and multi-channel networks on YouTube.
