ABOUT ME

Author, Speaker, and Blogger

Ursula Ringham

Author, Speaker, and Blogger

Social media and digital marketer by day, author by night, and mother 24/7. I’ve lived and breathed Silicon Valley my entire life. I grew up in Palo Alto, CA, and attended the all-girls school Castilleja. My family worked in commercial and residential real estate development and local politics. I entered the high tech industry at the age of twenty through a summer job at a then-small software company, Adobe Systems, Inc.
 
My degree in International Relations provided me with a complex understanding of the world. I call upon it quite frequently, but it could not seduce me away from the adventures I found at home. For over a decade, I worked at Adobe and Apple in their Developer Relations organizations, helping start-ups and strategic accounts bring technologies and products to market.
 
Today, I am Head of Influencer Marketing at SAP. I stay on top of the hottest social media and content trends, build relationships with thought leaders, maintain an active blog, interact on social media, and occasionally participate on live-streaming video shows. In my spare time, I dream up amazing stories about the insidious side of Silicon Valley and find the time to write them down - usually during winter on my weekly trips up to the snow.
 
I hope you enjoy following my stories and engaging with me online.
