Work Experience
I joined the MIT startup Bluefin Labs in 2011, which was later acquired by Twitter. I continued to work at Twitter for 4.5 years in product marketing.

Share Your Startup Story
I've create a recommendation app called Etch, which is powered by reviews from people you know and trust – an innovative approach to the way we discover local businesses. Etch modernizes word-of-mouth recommendations, taking what is traditionally a one-to-one interaction between friends and providing scalability. With Etch, people can save and rate the places they visit, which can only be seen by their friends. This encourages contribution from a wider range of people who would otherwise not feel comfortable sharing their thoughts on public review forums — a layer of trust and personalization that does not exist anywhere else.

You can download Etch in the app store here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/etch-save-share-discover-places/id1065298053?mt=8
