Product + Design, Founder. I make products happen.
I bring people and ideas together to create products—by managing a team, by encouraging creativity and collaboration, by rolling up my sleeves and getting stuff done. I have worked in the tech industry for 25 years in a variety of roles. I founded Miter and Emu Messenger (acquired by Google), was VP Design at Heap, and am an alumnus of Google, Facebook, Yahoo, TechCrunch, and Harvard.
I value pragmatism, humility, empathy, humor, and compassion. A healthy team is one of the most durable, valuable things one can build, so I prioritize who I work with and how we work. But also I like interesting, challenging projects—especially those that require an understanding of all the messiness that makes us human.
I try not to take myself too seriously. Sometimes I succeed.
