Accurate information is the most important value behind all that we cherish in our modern lives, and it is the awesome force behind the explosion of the data driven Internet, my career industry. As an advocate of the "scientific method", I know that with strong data, creative thinking, and fast iterations to market, many business challenges can turn into lucrative opportunities.
As a 20-year veteran of the Internet, with experience in product development, marketing, design, engineering, and monetization, I am always ready to bring my high standard of excellence and execution to any organization.
I look forward to hearing about any senior roles in Southern California that are befitting of my background and experience, so please feel free to contact me in this regard.
