I get to work on all sorts of gadgets and gizmos to help share TED with the world. From iOS to Android, gaming consoles to set-top TV boxes -- anything with a screen that I can tinker with. I also lead development of the TEDConnect conference app.

My TED story
I was introduced to TED.com my senior year of college when a professor showed me the site and specifically, Sir Ken Robinson's first talk. I quickly became a voracious consumer of the talks and greatly admired the organization and what it stood for. I've had the privilege of working for TED since March of 2011, before which I was with Apple business sales for nearly 2 years in Manhattan. Thus far, TED has been everything I could have hoped for, and I couldn't be happier with the turns and twists of life that led me here.
