There is turmoil in America today. Issues of racism that are deeply rooted in this Great Country’s history. As an immigrant turned US Citizen I hear the anger of my fellow citizens. I too in many countless moments have been subject to “racial slurs.” There are many out there who choose to treat others with disrespect because they are different from them. As an immigrant, I chose to persevere. I did not allow others to define me. I worked hard.
Today, I recognize that change is needed. But I will not let my fight for that change be defined by my past.
Working at a startup opens doors to countless opportunities. I was hired to run product marketing for a mobile app startup that caters to the enterprise. Four months after joining, our investor funds were close to none. Everyone needed to sell.
I was skeptical, yet dove in face first into sales. Three years later, the startup has grown it's quarterly recurring revenue to $1M. We started with one enterprise customer. After my third year, we had forty enterprise brands. Hunger makes magic happen.

I’m unashamed to call myself an app power user. Any app that lands on my device has to delight by design, have a killer intuitive user experience and deliver on any of the promises it made to earn its place.
As someone constantly on-the-go, juggling multiple projects and activities is something I love to do and do well. Admittedly, this lifestyle is only possible when I’m able to organize priorities and properly set realistic expectations. It also helps when you have an awesome team to collaborate with (I do!) and, thankfully, have access to awesome mobile technology.
A form may not change the world. It gets the conversation going. Last week, Girls in Tech asked companies to close the gender pay through their raising awareness campaign.
As summer the season winds down, the fall conference season kicks in full force. It is my second day back from Black Rock City, Nevada where over 65,000 desert dwellers indulged in creative workshops, admiring and climbing giant sculptures, riding art cars of different sizes and shapes, dancing, hopping and dub-stepping to non-stop music and other interactive and engaging activities and events. Out in the radical environment of unpredictable dust storms, scorching heat, scarce water supply and zero connectivity these engaging desert events are welcome forces of stimulation. It was a radically different experience yet incredible.

Big data. It's the term on the tip of every C-level executive's tongue, and you can't flip through an issue ofForbes or CIO without seeing at least one story mentioning the impact it is going to have across every industry. Recently, Kimberly Collins, a vice president at Gartner Research, predicted that big data will be the next major "disruptive technology" to affect the way businesses interact with customers, and advised chief information officers to start thinking about how to integrate it with CRM systems now if they want to reap the long-term strategic benefits.
