Key Accomplishments

I'm an entrepreneur and a business developer at heart. Before joining Tagged, I was Head of Product at Viddy and I served as the Director of Mobile at SPINMEDIA where I lead the mobile initiative across the companies 40+ brands. I have also worked for some amazing enterprises including Myspace and Technicolor/Dreamworks, where I was awarded 4 patents around mobile based UI.

I received my MBA from Cal State Long Beach and have over 7+ years in mobile product experience. I've managed the successful creation and launch of over 40 mobile apps, 2 of which were iTunes store top 10 spot holders, and 21 mobile sites.

My interests focus on product development in and around social and mobile platforms. The ability to build mobile products that impact millions of users and understand how to market them post-launch is critical to a successful product lifecycle.

Although my professional and personal lives intersect, I'm also passionate about traveling, film, photography, staying active, healthy and meeting new exciting people.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I have a unique background in product, mobile, UI/UX, photography, and film. I'm a digital swiss army knife.
