Tell us a bit about yourself

Over the last 16 years, I have been working at the nexus and technology and education, bringing innovative products to global markets… through multiple alliances and channels. During my career at Sun Microsystems, Pearson and Cengage Learning, I managed global business development for a $500M line of business, doubled market share from 30% to 60% through innovative solution partnerships, and drove annual double-digit revenue growth through channel partners in emerging markets. I am a keen observer of edtech innovations, passionate about leveraging technology to benefit teachers and students everywhere … and am fortunate to be “plugged into” an extensive global network of influencers and policy makers.

What is your role or interest in education technology?

After several years of driving ed tech solutions and strategic alliances around the world, I'm passionate about "giving back" by making relevant education accessible and affordable to underserved populations worldwide.

Do you currently subscribe EdSurge's newsletters for the latest news and info on the edtech industry?
