As an early employee at Facebook, she led major consumer marketing initiatives in the company's formative years, helped launch the live streaming video industry, and was nominated for an Emmy Award in 2011 for her innovative coverage of the midterm elections, combining television and social media. Since leaving Facebook in 2011, she has published two books: Dot Complicated, a New York Times Best Seller, about our exciting (but complicated!) wired lives, and Dot, a children's book about a tech-savvy little girl, set to become a children's television show in fall 2016, in partnership with Jim Henson Productions. Randi is the host of a weekly business talk radio show on SiriusXM, and a frequent contributor on The Today Show.

She has invested in and advised more than a dozen women-led startups and she serves on the board of Professional Diversity Network, a publicly traded company, working closely with Fortune 500 companies to close the gender and diversity gap. In March 2016, she will appear on screen as an investor in the television show, Quit Your Day Job, on Oxygen TV, highlighting female entrepreneurs across the country, as they seek funding and mentorship.
A lifelong lover of musical theater and a trained opera singer, Randi joined the cast of Rock of Ages on Broadway in Spring 2014 in a leading role for 30 performances. In 2015, she joined the American Theatre Wing's Tech Advisory Committee. She is proud to be part of the Woodshed Collective family, bringing technology and theater together in innovative new ways.
