I've helped launch successful, industry changing startups, bootstrapped my own, and helped larger tech companies re-launch and refresh their aging solutions. As a product manager its essential to understand all aspects of the business, from the details of software development to the larger vision and strategy of the company. I'm the rare individual who knows how to think creatively and bring rigor and process to ensure repeatable success.
