Come hear from an amazing line up of speakers on March 21, graciously hosted by Twitter at their LA office. Save the date!

Julia Martin | Senior Manager at MoPub

Julia has close to 10 years of experience in the digital advertising world. For 4 years at Google, she worked primarily with desktop publishers to help them build out successful monetization strategies through Google’s suite of products. At MoPub (a division of Twitter), she is focused specifically on mobile app monetization, and works with developers across the globe to grow their businesses through the MoPub platform and RTB exchange.

Sean Thompson | VP of Production at MobileDeluxe

Samuel Braff |  VP of Product Development at textPlus

Growing up in Santa Monica as the son of a BAYWATCH producer, Samuel Braff had a skewed perception of what Silicon Beach would eventually become. Sam currently serves as Vice President of Product Development & Monetization at textPlus, a mobile app powering the next generation of telecommunication. Previous roles include Director of Product Development at Ceros/Crowd Fusion and Director of Technology & Operations at Comedy.com. An Android enthusiast and acknowledged know-it-all, Sam is often caught with his hands in the client codebase. Fun fact: Sam was voted "Most Likely To Be Seen On The Golf Course" by his textPlus coworkers.
