We worked together at Sling Media
Experience, determination, hard work and willingness to take risk will make Vicky a great entrepreneur.
We worked together at Sling Media
In the projects that I've worked on with Vicky, she's demonstrated a tireless and relentless work ethic. She is analytical, insightful, and ... focused on driving projects to completion. She's a pleasure to work with, as she gets along well with others (navigating a wide range of personality types and working styles) and has the talent of inspiring others to work hard for her.

Vicky is probably the most driven and dedicated person I know. She has a laser focus on the task at hand, and is somehow capable of switchi ... ng contexts in the blink of an eye. A great multi-tasker. She is also a talented critical thinker, always asking the right questions when vetting new ideas and concepts, even when those concepts fall outside of her area of expertise. Mash those skills together with her stellar project management skills and you've got a recipe for an entrepreneur whose lead I would be happy to follow. Finally, on top of all that, Vicky is simply a thoughtful and caring human being, and a pleasure to work with.

Besides the basics--a firm grasp of business, etc.--Vicky's real strength lies in her ability to get any team of people working in sync on t ... he right priorities. Nobody wants to disappoint her--she naturally and kindly brings out the best in people. You will succeed!

vicky is a very detailed oriented product person who has the uncanny ability to understand end customer needs and define a product/service t ... hat meets expectations. she also has great perseverance and does not give up easily in the face of challenges.
We worked together at Sling Media
Vicky is a gifted professional and I could expound many stories about her talents that will make her successful as an entrepreneur; however, ... it's her genuine affable nature that distinguishes her, imho. This is an often overlooked quality that allows teams to flourish and work at their true potential. I've experienced this first hand at several renowned Silicon Valley companies and can say with the utmost confidence that Vicky shares this exquisite and rare skill set.

We worked together  •  Digital Media Strategy, Product and BD
With a well-rounded business background from product, marketing, to business development, as well as solid integrity and character, Michael ... would make a top notch cofounder (who is also fun to work with).
