I oversee the marketing efforts for all O’Reilly conferences, based in Sebastopol, California. I’m also on a mission to help bring more diverse speakers and participants to our events, particularly women, people of color, and other groups traditionally underrepresented at tech events.
Previous positions at O’Reilly, which I joined in 2000, include publicist, Intranet editor, and event coordinator. I’ve also toiled happily as a community manager at Borders, in the Letters Department at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, and as the associate alumni relations director at NYU’s Stern School of Business.
I’m interested in media, publishing, social networks, marketing, SEO, location awareness, and open source. I’m also an avid writer, crafter, knitter, reader, and pet lover.
If you see me at the conference, please say hello and tell me what you think of it! You can also connect with me on LinkedIn and follow me on Twitter: @suzaxtell.
