Describe your role on the PBS Digital team.
As Product Deployment Manager, I focus on developing ways to smooth the onboarding and learning process for stations that are interested or already using our products.

How will the digital world change over the next few years?
I think that the popularity of mobile and OTT will continue to increase, giving audiences more power over how they consume content. However, I always joke around that my son will be viewing his shows, while messaging with friends, and posting on social media, all through a holographic device of some kind.

What is the one website you can’t live without?, hehehe--It allows me to have ALL websites. Booyah!

What book do you think every person needs to read?
Green Eggs and Ham. It reminds readers to try new things.

What is your favorite mobile app?
Is Safari on iPhone considered an app?? If so, then Safari is my favorite. After all, it's the internet in your pocket.

Describe your perfect weekend.
My son sleeps in….'til 7 a.m. Currently 5:30 a.m. is his standard!!! If he sleeps until 7 a.m., that will have awesome ripple affects for the rest of my day.

If you could have a Google Hangout with any person, who would it be?
My grandfather on my father’s side: He passed before I was born. He is survived by my grandmother. I’ve only seen two pictures of him, one with my grandmother, and one with all of my aunts and uncles (12 total). I think my father was 17 years old in that picture. Both pictures are in front of their stick house in the Dominican Republic.

Describe the internet in one word.
