I lead the Marketplaces team at OpenTable, the largest marketplace connecting diners & restaurants around the world, and am the “DRI” or directly-responsible individual for yield and loyalty. I’m excited to work on products which introduce marketplace dynamics into OpenTable — and provide more powerful marketing tools for restaurants in the process. I joined the team because I was excited to build this new product group from scratch, and to scale OpenTable globally as part of The Priceline Group.
I developed my obsession with product development as co-founder at CoPress, a digital media startup that transformed college media. We were able to topple the stagnant incumbent and inspire some amazing college journalism, but we weren’t quite able to turn a profit. When we closed CoPress, I set out to learn how to operate an amazing business, which sent me to the consulting firm McKinsey, where I spent two years studying 20+ businesses and learning from some amazing business leaders.
In between McKinsey and OpenTable, I spent three years at eBay’s internal innovation and incubation lab, eBay New Ventures.
