PRODUCT + DESIGN + BUILD
I am either an engineer who is superb at design, a designer who is accomplished at engineering, or a product manager who can speak the language of designers, engineers and customers. You pick.
I view PRODUCT product management/leadership, user workflow, user features, IXD, product evaluation, roadmap planning, competitive analysis, DESIGN user interface mockups & wireframes, branding, logos + iconography, marketing material, websites, videos + animations and other visual assets , and BUILD software engineering, software architecture, data science/AI techniques as deeply interconnected disciplines. I love taking an incredibly complex problem and leading a team to distill it down to a gorgeous, simple and effective solution.
My personal mission is take great ideas and turn them into best-in-class B2B products. I have a career track record of creating new solutions and taking existing products to new levels, from startups to Fortune-500 companies. I know that by creating a unified perspective of user needs, embracing the technological art of the possible, and working in the pragmatic realities of team skills, budgets, and schedules, we can create sticky products with coveted features that can inspire customers.
Creating a product strategy is at the heart of product management. The process of strategy is informed by a having deep understanding of customer experience, researching users and the market (both qualitatively and quantitatively), and uncovering the underlying needs, goals and subsequent features. This is at the core of my holistic approach to product management and product leadership.
MAKING THINGS WORK
I am a classically trained computer scientist (BS, MS, PhD in CS) that understands the full stack for desktop, server, serverless, and mobile development. I have built complex data pipelines to leverage a wide variety of data science, AI and NLP techniques, leading to scalable, intelligent and responsive platforms for B2B companies in multiple verticals. My success has been a direct result of a decade of leading remote and geographically distributed teams with a diverse set of skills and cultural backgrounds.
