I'm a technologist with deep experience in the digital product lifecycle, operational digital transformation and the technical aspects of web development. I am currently VP, Head of Tech at Anthos Capital where I explore how emerging tech can evolve our internal workflows and tools.
Previously, I was a Managing Partner of Lat Long, specialized in leading product development, strategy and digital transformation efforts for clients exploring expansion or reinvention. We worked on both the strategic and technical fronts to evolve nascent ideas into fully developed products for clients like Airstream, Apollo 16 Astronaut Charlie Duke, the LGBT Center of New York and Learning Ally. In the process, we pioneered new WordPress architectures using the latest Gutenberg capabilities to create incredible digital publishing tools.
I was the tech co-founder of Alumni Spaces, a platform that blends organizational management, web publishing, fundraising and analytics tools to power the local alumni group networks of major universities such as Missouri, Clemson, Florida State, UNC and Virginia Tech. Alumni Spaces raised an independent seed round and was also part of the Entrepreneurs Roundtable Accelerator's 8th cohort.
I joined Ripple6 (acq. Gannett, '09), as an Account Manager, becoming the 11th member of a team that grew to nearly 60 in 18 months. We built white label social networks for publishing companies like Gannett, Meredith and Honey Magazine. I carried responsibility for our relationship with Meredith and eventually expanded to include project/product management roles, owning the full product/client lifecycle for our Ripple Analytics product and branded properties connected to Parents Magazine, Better Homes & Gardens and Family Circle.
Started my career at Outrider as a founding member of WPP's first social media strategy team. Our mandate was to convince brands like Ford, Nokia and Land Rover that social media was worth taking seriously, back when that wasn't so obvious.
Graduated from the University of Missouri with a BA in Political Science, where I was also vice president of the Missouri Students Association.
