I'm a seasoned product leader with 15 years experience in software, apps, and games. This includes a broad expertise in cross-functional leadership, agile/scrum methodologies, telemetry data analysis, and more. I pride myself in using a data-driven product leadership approach, including a strong desire to get into the details directly with users.
Based in Salt Lake City, My passion lies in bridging the realms of design psychology in both gaming and software. I have dedicated my professional career to uncovering the intriguing parallels between professional e-sport players and software power users, as well as exploring the social dynamics ignited by elements like "hi-scores" in productivity platforms. I find joy in translating these insights into tangible enhancements and features, creating products and experiences that people LOVE!
