I lead the social gaming initiatives at PokerStars/Full Tilt, part of Amaya Gaming. Previously, I was Sr Director on Zynga's social casino, building out the VIP and loyalty programs for Hit It Rich! slots and Zynga Poker. I came to Zynga from Spooky Cool, where I was Chief Growth Officer and before that, GM International Publishing at Playdom/Disney and co-Founder and CCO of Merscom (which we sold to Playdom). My passions are customer behavior and analytics.
