As a product guy, I turn requirements into successful results.
As the first and only Product role at StackAdapt, I help drive product development efforts from conception to launch, and work to shape our product into the most powerful platform in the space.
At D2L, I fulfilled the role of a Product Owner on Agile development teams. This required making sense of big problems and making product decisions by putting myself in users' shoes.
I've also held positions at RedFlagDeals.com and Blackberry in the past.
My technical inclination was apparent at an early age when I built a computer at 12 and started learning C++ at 13.
Today, I enjoy walking the fine line between business and technology.
I graduated from a 5-year program that combines a complete Engineering degree with the core teachings of a Business degree. My Engineering focus was in Mechatronics (a fancy word for robotics).
I own and oversee product management end-to-end, from vision through to execution.
As the first and only Product role, I help drive product development efforts from conception to launch, and work to shape our product into the most powerful platform in the space.
As the voice of the customer, I shipped custom products built by Agile software teams. Typical project tasks include eliciting "true" requirements out of ambiguity, delivering product demos, assessing scope/feasibility, writing user stories, drawing design mockups, and producing go-to-market material.
I developed internal web tools used by R&D while also maintaining & supporting already deployed solutions. In one project I doubled the speed of a web product with a back-end cache. In another I made a site responsive webpage by re-writing the CSS.
Ensured a squeaky-clean bug-free experience for deal hunters.
