About this Speaker

I am a serial entrepreneur and senior leader known for building high growth teams. Most recently I served as Chief Growth Officer of WeWork, where I was responsible for driving their rapid expansion and as a result increasing revenue 100% year-over-year for 4 consecutive years to a $4 billion annual run rate.

Trained as an architect, my interests and expertise lie in connecting technology and data to help people work. Working cross-functionally, I enable new insights into the knowledge management of technology and develop approaches that leverage data to deliver value and drive business performance. I received my Master of Architecture with honors from Columbia University and was an Adjunct Professor at Columbia University's GSAPP from 2006 - 2012. I have led seminars and workshops focusing on the impact of technology on design processes at conferences such as Autodesk University, RTC North America and AIA's Technology in Architectural Practice.
