Key Accomplishments

I'm a seasoned product management and engineering leader with almost 15 years of experience building elegant web and mobile consumer products at early- to mid-stage startups. I have a passion for building products that transform industries, products that matter. I consider myself a part-time strategist, part-time product manager, part-time business analyst, and part-time user experience creator. And once upon a time, I wrote code (and I'm currently brushing up my skills on CodeSchool!).

I'm a firm believer in applying lean methods to product development, and somewhat of an analytics geek at heart. I've built and managed amazing agile product and software teams. I'm an experienced member of executive management teams, and comfortable with board-level interactions; I also love getting my hands dirty in day-to-day product management.

I'm currently doing some contract/advisory work and am exploring new full-time adventures.
