You Should Know About Me

Key Accomplishments

I've spent time in many facets of engineering, from circuit board design to embedded algorithms to software - but that was long ago. More recently, I've headed up product teams, been a general manager for a personalized greeting card business, and now lead product, ux and analytics at 99designs.

How I like to work with people
As an Advisor

I'm really looking to help someone build a great product. Which to me means starting from validating and refining the business strategy and goals, then working that down to the product strategy and vision. And then finally with the actual execution.

I do it in my day job and I like it so much, I want to do it some more.
