I'm an Account Manager for the Brand Communications + Design team at Red Hat. I also work on exciting projects for opensource.com as the Marketing Manager for email and webcasts. My voice is the one you hear at the beginning of each Open Your World webcast and I'm the one that gets nervous about how many emails we send out to you all. I live and work in Raleigh, NC, but I was born and raised between Boston and Cape Cod in Massachusetts. (Go Red Sox!)
