Favorite place in Atlanta?

The Dekalb Farmer’s Market — Super fresh, inex­pen­sive groceries, cafe­te­ria style inter­na­tional food, fresh baked goods…what more could you want? Just don’t forget a jacket; it’s seri­ously cold in there.

Alaska. I’ve always wanted to see the north­ern lights and I love to hike and visit national parks.

Why do you think digital intelligence is important?

The online expe­ri­ence is such a huge compo­nent of how customers perceive a business/brand. Digital intel­li­gence allows compa­nies to effec­tively assess and opti­mize this expe­ri­ence in a holis­tic way which ulti­mately gives them much more control over this percep­tion. Basi­cally, with the right approach, it’s a game changer.

What’s your favorite thing about working at Search Discovery?

I love how SDI gives its employ­ees the freedom to work in the way that best suits them. Plus, the immense amount of inter­nal support amongst cowork­ers and from the orga­ni­za­tion, in general, is pretty amazing.
