I’m currently the Director of Product Marketing for a really cool digital media company called Spiceworks in Austin, TX. I get to do to a lot of the things I’m passionate about like help develop relationships with media agencies and give large public speaking presentations. Working with people is one of my greatest strengths, whether it’s strategizing with the exec team, giving sales training presentations or working one-on-one with a coworker solve a problem. Helping people and companies succeed is what I enjoy most about my career.

Outside of work, my passions include running (like half marathons and Ragnar races), traveling to other countries, trying new restaurants and spending time with family.
