I have played a central role at technology innovators and major content publishers in both the mobile and web software industries. Whether defining the product roadmap for eCommerce software, managing the mobile personalization for top-tier brands like DC Comics and Harry Potter at Warner Bros., being the production head of Universal Music Group's multi-million dollar mobile content business, developing rich promotional campaigns for consumer brands using image and audio recognition technology, or building a next-gen mobile messaging app, I have consistently been a driver of high-profile tech projects for years.
Currently, I am a member of the extraordinarily-talented team at Revenue.io, where I am a Product Manager for Moments™, an AI-powered real-time conversation guidance tool used by sales teams around the globe.
When I'm not up to my ears in all things digital, I make music, spend time with friends and enjoy Southern California's culture, ecology and lifestyle. For professional inquiries or to simply say hello, drop me an email.

As Revenue.io's Product Manager of Moments™ (an AI-powered conversation guidance tool for salespeople) and (previously) the Revenue.io Admin Console (a backend tool for managing third party integrations, user entitlements, product settings), I align the company’s product strategy with that of our customers by defining the product roadmap, working directly with stakeholders on gathering product insights, and managing a full stack team of engineers, design, and QA resources.
Revenue.io powers high-performing teams with real-time guidance. By surfacing and recommending what works best, Revenue.io enables hundreds of customers like HPE, Nutanix, and AWS to deliver predictable results and optimize their entire revenue operation. Founded in 2013, Revenue.io is headquartered in Los Angeles and backed by venture funding from Goldman Sachs, Bryant Stibel, and Palisades Capital.
Defined product requirements, set engineering priorities, wrote user stories, improved UI/UX and managed feature development for Channels Manager, Solid Commerce’s multichannel inventory e-commerce platform and Marketplace Shipping, an orders and shipping system built exclusively for UPS. Communicated across teams and directly with customers through development sprints to ensure business needs were understood by stakeholders and deliverable dates were met. Tools: Jira, Confluence, Gliffy, Teamwork, etc.
Co-founder of Ideally and product developer of Shmap - a next-generation mobile messaging application that harnesses GPS technology to put location at the center of the social messaging experience. Responsibilities included product requirements documentation and user stories, product roadmap, user documentation, web development, business strategy, UI/UX, design, social media marketing and more. Tools used included Jira, Slack, Cloudforge and more.
Click the images for samples of user documentation I composed, designed and coded for the Ideally CMS (B2B) and the Shmap mobile messaging application (B2C).
I have a solid foundation in a variety of languages and earned a Certificate in Web Development from New York University. I've built this site you're currently visiting, along with several others for both previous employers and as a freelance developer for 3rd party clients. Pay me a visit on GitHub to review my code.
At in8 iD I managed the concepts, creative design, implementation and roadmap for all content and marketing within in8 Mobile's two applications: iD Browser and Verizon iD. These multi-modal recognition applications utilized both audio recognition technology (to identify recorded music and sounds), and image recognition technology (allowing users to snap photos of printed media, triggering experiences in the app such as augmented reality, videos, information, scavenger hunts, and more.)
Browse through select projects below for examples of my work which focused on building user engagement through in-app campaigns and experiential marketing programs.
My experience producing content for mobile devices began back in 2001 when I managed the production of ringtones and graphics for a very early player in the mobile content space: Premium Wireless Services (eventually purchased by InfoSpace). My career path then led me to Warner Bros. and Universal Music where I was the head of production for all mobile content at both organizations (and effectively responsible for tens of millions of dollars in yearly revenue.)
While the importance of mobile personalization content has waned since the mid-to-late 2000's, the importance of providing users with rich, engaging content experiences has not. I embrace the ongoing challenge of creating content experiences in mobile applications that serve value to end users, all while maintaining the highest standards that top content publishers expect.
I am a musician of 30+ years; a guitarist, drummer, electronic music composer and DJ. I own a vast collection of vinyl records and possess more knowledge of popular music than is probably healthy. Music has been a lifelong passion of mine - enriching my personal life and (occasionally) paying my bills.
