    Economic Opportunity

    I love: learning new stuff, solving problems, and building things. Whenever I can do two or more of these at the same time, I am happy.

    I’ve been fortunate in my path in that I’ve gotten to experience product from every angle: from working with engineering to being on the front line with the customer actually selling what we’ve built. Product manager, sales engineer, account manager, data scientist – I’ve been them all, and that cumulative view is my edge.

    I’m an early-stage, “every hat” guy. I joined my first startup (BloomReach) as the 11th employee, acting as a generalist across a number of functions as the company grew to over 180 employees. I then decided it was time to do it again, and joined InfoScout, a company providing real-time shopper insights to brands and retailers.
