I was born in the American Southeast, grew up in the Northeast, then lived in France and England before high school age. At a young age a learned to appreciate different cultures and developed a love for travel. I have now made it full circle, twice, northwards in the US, across the Atlantic and back 'home' to South Carolina. Back to my roots now, looking to change the world in my own local/global capacity.
I've had the pleasure of working for and with a variety of companies, big and small: Dmarc8, ViaMichelin, Michelin North America, Avenue A | Razorfish, 10Best, PocketVox, UpSNAP, CreatiVasc, DoHop, Travel Team Consulting, MailItDirect, Telestial, MobiQuis, Gorilla Park, Nucletron and General Electric.
I'm passionate about my family and friends, and about helping people to improve their lives. I love learning and improving my mind and spirit. I'm a world citizen and just want us all to get along!
Why don't we make the world a safer and more enjoyable place to bicycle?
Innovation, design, product development - solving problems with ideas and technology.
My first exposure to TED was through videos right after they were put online. I was blown away. Then I attended a TEDx event and decided we needed something like that in my hometown of Greenville, SC. I've now been involved in planning (as program curator) of three successful TEDxGreenville events. We have also started an innovative TEDxGreenvilleSalon program, where we move our events to different venues in our community, every month, in order to spread the TEDx experience across a broad spectrum of our society. It has been one of the funnest projects I've ever been involved in. Thank you TED!
