Gabriela HorowitzIntroducing Gabriela Horowitz, Product Marketing Manager

My name is Gabriela Horowitz and I am a new Product Marketing Manager here at The Orchard.

I am a graduate from the University of Southern California, where I studied Creative Writing and Communication Design. Shortly thereafter, I moved to New York where I began working at IBM Watson in client engagement and product marketing. My work focused specifically on how businesses can integrate chatbots and natural language understanding applications into their customer experiences. I learned a great deal about how artificial intelligence can work with humans to solve complex problems but, with a love for music and film, I am excited to start my adventure here at The Orchard.
