Yay! Excited to brainstorm a regular gathering of #communitymanagers here at +RocketSpace  to bring together all the different #cmgr   from all the #startups  in this #incubator / #accelerator/ #coworkingspace .

Introduction

A native Berkeleyan, I’ve been on a global rollercoaster: fired in Hollywood, abandoned on a snake-infested island off Borneo, married in an Ottoman palace, interviewed by Matt Lauer on the Today show. Plus, I've got a Bryn Mawr College degree in Classical Archaeology, of all things.
