Background

Summary

American expat and Valley transplant, I've lived and worked on and off abroad. With 6+ years delivering consumer mobile and Internet products, I strive to answer three questions: What's next, How can we do it better, and Can it be monetized?

Recently, I was the mini P&L owner and a customer truth seeking missile for the world's 3rd largest marketplace. I worked on the team responsible for generating $11B in site conversion, and my role was to ensure we designed, built, tested, and launched the right products and features (on mobile, web, and email) that drove business impact.

My superpowers are user empathy and observation, and I'm passionate about creating experiences people love. Whatever project I take on, I leverage my deep understanding of human behavior and technology to create compelling user stories that scale, drive engagement, and increase revenue.

Specialties: Mobile and web UX/UI, consumer mobile and Internet, product management, opportunity sizing and definition, feature prioritization, product strategy, A/B testing, user testing, needs analysis, product specification, marketplaces, UI design, and social.
