I graduated from a town of 2k and a class for 40 (we were consider a large class; the one after me had 27). I've worked in politics and then found my way to TED where I started out on the TED Prize team. Today, I'm on the TED Fellows team; if you see Tom Rielly, I'm sure to follow.

An idea worth spreading
One of my favorite things TED does is Ads Worth Spreading. In a society bombarded by commercial propaganda, we desperately need to change the tone and direction of our advertising industry. Why just sell a product when you can promote an idea? Also...let's make Election Day a national holiday. And while I'm at it, let's get rid of the penny.

My TED story
I came to work for TED on a complete fluke. In fact, the story is pretty fun, and as with most stories in my life, it involves another TED employee; Jordan Reeves. Ask me all about it in person! :-)
