I'm an incredibly curious, process-oriented person who loves to build technology that makes the world a better place. I have over a decade of experience building and leading teams and have particular strengths in product management, user experience design, agile software development, and customer-focused problem-solving.
In 2008, I left college to join Barack Obama's campaign for president where I built key tech that was used by field organizers around the country to connect and share best practices and track their quantitative progress to goals. Following President Obama's inauguration in 2009, I founded startup NationalField with campaign friends Edward Saatchi and Aharon Wasserman. We were named to Forbes 30 Under 30 in recognition of our work for leading political and nonprofit customers. NGP VAN acquired NationalField in 2013. Once there I focused on having a positive impact on the company overall. I worked with the CEO to launch the first comapny-wide hackathons, a tradition that continues today. I advocated for and built the company's first product design team where I hired and led a team of user researchers, UX designers, and frontend engineers. I worked alongside the VP of Product to transform the product development process to involve stakeholders much earlier and to become more customer-focused. Alongside the VP of Marketing, I helped formulate and launch a new brand for the company, EveryAction, which has since seen record growth in the nonprofit technology space.
I recently relocated to Seattle and am in search of my next thing. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
