“

I lead product management and development teams with experience in both identifying valuable market opportunities and executing technical solutions. Targeting mid-market to enterprise B2B customers, I've held positions as diverse as a principal software architect to product director while leading software engineers, UX designers, and product managers to develop and launch software products. If you are looking to bring deeper product management tactics and awareness to your engineering or technical leadership approach, or are a product manager desiring better communication with an engineering manager or team, or are looking to build trust and influence within a product development organization, I'd love to help you reach your goals!
