<p><i>I'm a San Francisco native that loves to explore technology and communities professionally. Part of that passion leaks into my love of travel and reading, writing and art. Looking forward to honing my skills as a crafter and helper amongst the Simbi community.</i></p>
<p><i>I was born and raised in a family of programmers, technical writers, and entrepreneurs in beautiful San Francisco. Passionate about innovation and authenticity. I started my career early with an internship for a small company in an incubator in 2005. The next year, I joined full-time after graduating in 2006 while the company was still in infancy. That company was named “Yelp”, and after a few years of skyrocketing growth on the West Coast, I moved out to NYC to build the Yelp community on the ground in 2008. During my time in New York, I threw events for thirty to three-thousand committed community members, forged new, needle-moving partnerships and even rang the morning bell on the NYSE on the day the company went public. Since then I've helped dozens of early stage startup companies create community vision, business strategy and go-to-market game plans.
