I am a Product Manager with a strong user-centered design focus working on mobile and connected products
Currently, I am leading a product definition and ux team for several mobile consumer products at Verizon. I am an advocate for great user experience and driven by purposeful design and smart engineering. I follow the latest advances in technology, interaction design, and social trends. I make time to experiment with as many web and mobile apps, CMS publishing platforms and gadgets as I can.
Prior to Verizon, I was a consultant for a few start-ups in mobile, entertainment, social and B2B. Notably, I was the Product Manager that led a global team of designers, engineers, and media producers on development of a large-scale content social network, Dipdive. I have also been co-founder for both a bootstrapped mobile app startup and a venture-backed software company.

We want our kids to become creators, not just consumers. We want them to think about what goes into building software and hardware and how the internet works.
With an industrial design background and a career in technology, it was only a matter of time before I would experiment with the “Internet of Things”.
