Senior Product Manager
Last active: 05/28/2014
Product Manager with an M.A. in Organizational Leadership and 15+ years’ experience developing strategy and leading product development for fast-growth technology start-ups and highly iterative enterprises.
As co-founder of a web hosting company, the first platform architect at a mobile marketing agency, and the first product person at a mobile app security startup, with successful exits at each, I have faced the challenges inherent in startup environments and other small companies many times.
I have strong analytical skills and a natural curiosity about subjects like complexity theory, social dynamics, innovation, decision-making, and motivation and how those things impact human behavior and interaction with applications and digital content. I have a common sense approach to solving problems, and the ability to move easily between big picture strategic thinking and focused detail-oriented execution.
In my career, I have, among other things,:
- managed development of a document composition platform for a Fortune 50 financial services company,
- established a product management function at a mobile app security startup that served the #1 Food and Beverage company and the #1 Telecom Equipment Manufacturer,
- built a cloud-based mobile marketing platform and overseen production of dozens of mobile campaigns for brands such as American Airlines, Anheuser Busch, AT&T, Bacardi, Bank of America, Carl’s Jr., Discovery Channel, Frito Lay, GameStop, Grey Goose, McDonald’s, Nintendo, Nokia, Oxygen Network, State Farm Insurance, Warner Music Group, and Victoria’s Secret PINK,
- and co-founded a web hosting company, achieving an average of 500% annual growth in # of subscribers and 2000% annual growth in revenue over five years.
