Bio:

I started my career post-Oxy at an ad tech firm in New York called Undertone where I built my education around the digital advertising industry. After almost 2 years, I moved to Vox Media (a digital media publisher that owns well known brands such as Vox.com, NY Mag, SBNation, The Cut, Eater, and more!) to work on the revenue side where I've continued my growth and knowledge of the digital advertising industry. I work specifically on the operations side and work cross functionally with sales, product, revenue operations, and programmatic teams.

Career Advice:

2) Always ask questions/be curious
3) Be coachable
