About Randi Zuckerberg

Randi Zuckerberg believes in being a three-dimensional woman of many titles. She is the Founder & CEO of Zuckerberg Media, a boutique marketing firm and production company. Prior to founding her own company, Randi worked at a tiny internet company you may have heard of, called Facebook, where she created and ran the social media pioneer’s marketing programs from 2005-2011.

She is the author of two books: Dot Complicated, a New York Times bestseller, discusses Randi’s personal journey on the front lines of Facebook and her thoughts on how technology is changing our lives. The book inspired a weekly business radio show Dot Complicated with Randi Zuckerberg on SiriusXM. Dot, a children’s picture book, features an energetic, techy girl. In collaboration with Jim Henson Productions, Dot will air as an animated children’s TV show on NBC Sprout this September.

Randi is a television host and producer. In 2011, she was nominated for an Emmy Award for her innovative blend of online/TV coverage of the US elections. In 2012, she executive produced a docuseries on Bravo about Silicon Valley’s startup culture, and you can currently see her starring in Quit Your Day Job on NBC’s Oxygen, where she mentors and invests in entrepreneurs. She also regularly appears on The Today Show.

She is a sought-after speaker, and has traveled the world, sharing her personal story and insights on technology, business and entrepreneurship in a fun, engaging, and uniquely-Randi style of entertainment, comedy, and cutting-edge information.
In her spare time, you will find Randi at the theater. A lifelong theater lover, she starred in Rock of Ages on Broadway for a 30-show run in 2014. Randi is a TONY Awards voter and serves on the American Theatre Wing’s tech advisory committee.

But by far, Randi’s favorite and most important job is mom. She lives in New York City with her husband Brent, and her two sons, Asher and Simi.
