Key Accomplishments

Extensive experience with large-scale, complicated web applications for finance, advertising technology, social networking, online gaming. Experienced in designing for mobile & social.

I am a longtime UX and Product leader-manager who has more recently been involved with very early stage startups, most recently as co-founder of SportsGunner.com, designing and launching this online social game in the fantasy sports area. Currently advising a number of stealth-stage startups.

20 years in SF/SV, coming up on 17 years exclusively in digital design and UX. Now in LA, where I have also been involved in successful independent film and music production. I've worked at consultancies, large consumer web companies, enterprise/B-2-B Web software companies, small 2-3 person startups. I have familiarity with many industries: finance, technology, entertainment, consumer packaged goods, social networking and social games, pharma, hospitality, travel, advertising, media, and many others. Veteran of many product launches, I have seen and done it all in the world Web ventures.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Calm, effective, flexible, creative leadership for product and front-end development teams. Proven collaborator. I'm also a focused do-er.

I set a happy, pleasant, professional tone for my teams and I keep a sense of humor and a positive attitude, no matter how hectic things get. I'm easy to work with.

Passionate Lean Startup and Agile practictioner.

Prior experience in co-founding and launching my own startup. Large startup experience as well.

Proven ability to work effectively in high-pressure environments. I don't crack.
