For 15 years I’ve been deeply involved in the evolution of media. I was part of a small group of video pioneers in the early 2000s who helped build the video space from its infancy into the massive industry it is today. I started vlogging in 2005 and went on to develop and produce an abundance of original video content streamed hundreds of millions of times across networks and platforms – much of it in partnership with brands, and much of it collaboratively with top talent. I’ve had the opportunity to shape digital strategies and video products for major media companies and startups alike, including my own.
