The Little Laureate series was recently voted #3 of the Best Videos for Babies of all time by readers of Parents magazine, ranking just behind Disney and Elmo.

Heather followed the siren song of the Internet to pre-IPO, e-tailing giant buy.com, where she was the Manager of Web Development. After just three months, she was chosen by billionaire founder Scott Blum to help start a new subsidiary that licensed buy.com's technology to Fortune 500 companies including Compaq, Sony and Sharp. As the Director of Creative Services, Heather was responsible for the company's brand identity and strategic direction, as well as the development, usability and client integration of dynamic software products.
