The short version: I live in San Francisco and work in product marketing for Twilio. I also help run the San Francisco Product Marketing Meetup Group. 

My BA is in Political Science from Stanford University.

My professional background is in strategic communication and positioning, and I love working with product and sales teams to develop great products and sell them to customers who are excited to buy them. My perspective is decidedly market-oriented, but I definitely enjoy nerding out on technology too.

A few of the books that have influenced my thinking are:

Mindset

All Marketers Are Liars

Rework

Let My People Go Surfing

The Obstacle Is The Way

Essentialism

For the longer version, it's best to check my LinkedIn.

In my "spare" time, I also coach CrossFit because I am passionate about health and functional fitness. I hold a CrossFit Level 1 Certificate.

When I'm not doing either of those things, I'm mostly in the mountains climbing, backpacking, trail running and so on.
