Publishers of technology books, eBooks, and videos for creative people
I started at Peachpit almost 10 years ago as a publicist, where I focused on garnering press reviews, interviews, and excerpts related to Peachpit's vast array of books for creative computer users. After a couple years, I moved into product marketing management. As a marketing manager I have focused on all facets of marketing for what's grown to become books, eBooks, videos, and courses. In my current position I primarily focus on photography and design topics, and have the pleasure and honor of working with some of today's top photographers in the field—Scott Kelby, Joe McNally, Zack Arias, and others. I am responsible for investigating market opportunities and working with my editorial counterparts to bring effective products to market, and also for what I call the "fun stuff," like running creative consumer campaigns through our direct channel, networking with photographers and customers over social media, working with our designer on clever campaigns, leading Peachpit Photo Club, and more!
Prior to working at Peachpit, I worked as a PR Manager at a high-tech company in the Silicon Valley. I found the transition into publishing (or "ed tech"), a much more comfortable place to be as it combines my desire to stay up on technology with my passion for helping people learn and better their lives.
In my personal time, I enjoy the simple things most—hanging out with my family and friends, walking, reading, dinner with good company, and playing the piano when the mood strikes me.
