Vice President Product Marketing, Leap Motion
Rachel believes technology can make humans not only more powerful, but also more humane—and that both are required to create true value.
As VP of Product Marketing for Leap Motion, the company that allows people to interact in the digital world with their bare hands, she leads go-to-market efforts to bring embodiment and physical interaction to augmented and virtual reality. Before that, she scaled the story of IBM Studios from its mothership in Austin, Texas to 29 design studios worldwide, creating a more design-centric ethos at one of the world’s oldest and largest technology companies.
Our technology is becoming increasingly intimate, personalized, and embodied as we move into the cyborg generation. Rachel's background as an award-winning dancer and choreographer afford her a unique perspective on the possibilities and perils of this complex new world.
