Gina Rosenthal (Minks), Product Marketing Manager, VMware
I have a varied background: technical trainer, *nix sysadmin, technical training developer, community manager, social media marketing manager, and now product marketing manager.
Those are just my paid gigs, I also have a social justice background, and have been blogging for 12 years. All these threads weave together in interesting and powerful ways.
At my core, I’m a storyteller and educator. I’m interested in telling the story of technology in simple, clear terms.
