My work helps companies connect with ideas and talent in the world's most innovative cities.
In 2007 I started my career as a digital marketer working for a digital agency in Dumbo, Brooklyn, an area with over 150 media, tech and advertising companies. In 2009 I Co-founded a social gathering called "Digital DUMBO Drinks" to bring together creative and digital companies setting up shop nearby.
Over the past several years that small social gathering has evolved into a multi-faceted, recurring event series and marketing/innovation consultancy, Digital DUMBO, now with over 20,000 members around the world. Today we create experiences that connect forward-thinking companies with influencers in media, tech and advertising. We've since hosted events in Brooklyn, Boston, Dallas, London, Montreal, Valencia, and Washington DC, partnering with companies like Microsoft, Facebook, and Google, and featuring companies like VICE, Reddit, Buzzfeed, Etsy, foursquare, and more as speakers.
Through leading Digital DUMBO I've developed a unique skill set that can apply to a variety of roles within organizations working to connect with talent, innovation and creativity - no matter the geography.
Fact: Today there are over 1,700 innovative companies in Dumbo and the Brooklyn Tech Triangle, responsible for over $5bn in economic activity.
