Key Accomplishments

Able to decipher key customer motivations and translate those into product design elements that inspire and change user behavior. One of my key accomplishments in this field was the development of a game based learning network to teach algebra. We not only got an 87% student approval rating but we also doubled the performance of classroom instruction.

I co-founded the company that developed the algebra network so I have startup experience. We raised $12M of vc money during my tenure and I had responsibility for a $2M product development budget.

I'd love to bring my consumer empathy and insight to your product development team.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Let's see if we are a good fit. I have a prototype and plenty of experience building game based learning solutions. I'll pass the due diligence for sure having successfully launched products in my prior start up.

I'm looking for biz dev who can see how to monitize game based learning as apps, games on STEAM, or part of a post - coursera model that creates better learning environments than MOOCs.

As an Advisor

In the education space, connect w/me early because I can warn you of a lot of initial mistakes to watch out for.

With regards to any product development, I'm prolifically creative so I can brainstorm and riff on ideas productively. Be careful though, if you are not used to working with someone that brainstorms you may get a great feeling of disconnect thinking I don't get your business. That's because a brainstorm needs to be unrestricted so it can find other solutions. Most times people have already convinced themselves of their ultimate product, so this gets in the way of brainstorming and finding MVP solutions that can get you to the next step.
