I¬?m a data-driven and highly analytical Product Manager, Scrum Master and Scrum Product Owner. After having started as a service electrician with the United States Navy, I continued into the technical support industry and moved quickly into the advanced escalation teams. Being on the reactive side of product satisfaction, however, did not fully satisfy me. Shortly after finishing my business degree, I made the switch to Product Management and began my journey into building beautiful products that people love.
As a Product Manager, I have focused on reversing the mentality of, ¬?gut-feeling,¬? within the product development team by bringing concrete data and customer-based feedback into every step of the software development lifecycle. Whether the feedback is statistical in nature (Net Promoter Scores) or customer interviews and research, I have spent my time in this role producing effective, marketable software that our customers both need and love.
