I wrote my first program when I was 12 and started my first business shortly thereafter. For most of my life, I've been a product designer and engineer (hacker). During that time, I've developed a proven record of making products successful. What I enjoy most is taking a hands on approach to conceptualizing, operationalizing product strategy and leading both engineering and marketing efforts. I also have experience managing products at every stage - from conception, to growth and even decline.
I'm also curious and always learning about new ways of interacting with customers and building products.
