Biography

Tori Creighton

A.A. / Office Manager

As office manager and administrative assistant, Tori Creighton supports day-to-day operations of Playground. In addition to her operational work, she assists CFO Kristin Beach, Venture Partner Mark Valdez, and Rare Talent Collector Paul Galli.

Tori is a Silicon Valley native, but her interest in human behavior lured her away to study sociology at the University of Portland. After graduation, Tori began her career in education, teaching English and History to high school students. She quickly realized that being in Silicon Valley offered numerous opportunities to apply her skill set outside of the education field.

She found her way into tech, where she utilizes her keen interest in human nature to foster the founders’ vision of making Playground—the kind of place “you're excited to come to every day,” she says.

In addition to her work duties, Tori is co-commissioner of the unofficial Playground Fantasy Football league and resident dog whisperer.
