FIVE Fun Facts About Lindsey

  • I love to nerd out about classical music. I’ve sung in four professional operas and feel at home on stage.

  • No, I will not sing you something.

  • I don’t have Cable. I’d rather watch a movie or binge watch a show. But, honestly, I just don’t like watching that much TV.

  • I am genuinely fascinated by people and what makes them tick. I believe our feelings and sub-conscious belief systems dictate all the choices we make (whether that’s a business or consumer decision). Marketing is a people puzzle.

  • I have a fierce 7-year-old daughter who gives me a run for my money.

  • Sector focus is B2B Technology and SaaS 

  • Attended NYU and double majored in Political Science and Spanish
