I've been a leader in R/GA’s technology team for over 14 years, working with clients like HBO, Nike, Mastercard and Johnson&Johnson. I joined R/GA San Francisco in 2015 to lead the tech practice and relationships, including the close partnership with startups via R/GA Ventures’ Accelerator program.
Prior to R/GA San Francisco, I was in R/GA NY overseeing work for Fossil, AARP, E*TRADE, Volvo and PwC. During my R/GA tenure, I was also one of the founders of the R/GA Buenos Aires office, and lived in Argentina from 2010‐2011.
Throughout my career, I have been involved in multiple award‐winning projects, including the PayWithaTweet program which won Cannes Grand Prix in 2011, and Nike+ which won a Grand Andy in 2007.
