Innovative, hands-on technologist with a decade of executive leadership across a diverse set of industries.
I have a passion for growing and leading teams, helping them turn raw ideas into meaningful products and experiences; both running technology organizations for product companies and creative agencies, and producing films and TV series.
That doesn't make me unique or even unusual -- many of the best technologists are creative polymaths -- but it has left me well-rounded.
• Launched SENSEI, Cascade Energy's Energy Management Information System (EMIS), after leading the company on a four-year journey from prototype to product.
• Produced “No No: A Dockumentary”, a Sundance Film Festival Official Selection. Played movie theaters nationwide and on TV at Showtime, Netflix and ESPN.
• Directed Technology teams at interactive agencies Pop Art and Schematic, creating unique products and media experiences for national and regional brands and landing new AOR accounts.
I am currently in search of my next adventure.
