My passion is developing exceptional consumer products and services. If you need to create a compelling new product vision or hone an existing one, look no further. If you are mired in a competitive space with a me-too product, my experience and interest can help you find new ways to shake things up, stand out and leap ahead.
I'm looking to shape the vision for a new, cutting-edge software product or service, build and lead a company and/or technical team, while pushing the technology envelope in the mobile, web or consumer spaces. Having hired and lead teams of more than 30 engineers, I am also open to opportunities outside the United States.
I work best collaborating with small, motivated teams to produce greatness. I insist on working with fun, creative, smart and respectful people because I find that to excel, one needs an enjoyable, supportive and challenging environment. My colleagues can confirm my incessant drive to beat others to market with a novel product.Highlights
