About me

I am a builder and I love to build teams and systems that deliver solutions.
Seasoned Product Manager leading software development from ideation to launch in continuous integration and delivery environments. Most projects have been native mobile and responsive web applications for companies like West Elm & Williams-Sonoma, Christie's, Mercer, Nutrisystem, Discovery, Playtex and many others. I have led production across the entire software development lifecycle using Agile and Lean Startup methods to build, test, and validate innovation and to make data-informed decisions on alignment between business strategies and product roadmaps for future iterations. I am currently looking to build more blockchain projects, especially using Ethereum to create smart contracts and decentralized applications.

Great design is making something memorable and meaningful.

My Skills

Getting to the "finish line" and launching a project is when my role really begins. My focus shifts from getting-to-market to learning-from-the-market: Are our customers using the solution as expected? Did we create a delightful experience? Are our assumptions correct? What are our KPI’s telling us? These are the questions I look to answer in each new initiative created and these are my tools.
