Welcome to my website. This is a place where I have started to showcase my projects, ideas and professional career. I am open to conversations about career opportunities.
I’m a Product Manager with a background in Computer Engineer and Management. Based out of San Francisco, I excel at bridging the gap between technical and non-technical teams and creating technologies and products that people love. I currently work at Uber as a Product Manager. At both Facebook, and now Uber, I have focused on building internal tools to help make employees be as efficient as possible. In my spare time, I enjoy being in the outdoors, camping and the occasional racquetball game. I’ve had a lifelong passion for computers and have had a career that has spanned over a number of industries.
I started my career in the afternoons after high school at the Taunton Press as a Help Desk Representative. The company is a small private company that produces various craft magazines and books, and I was responsible for supporting and maintaining our IT systems.
Once I started college at the Rochester Institute of Technology, I began working in a number of roles in order to support my education. I was first a Desktop Support representative in our IT department and supported the university’s technology infrastructure. I then moved into a Desktop Engineering role where I helped the university modernize its desktop deployment environment.
My first co-op was in New York City at Genworth Financial; a recently spun-off company from General Electric. There I helped the organization clear out the IT backlog that had built up during the company’s transition, and helped write Java programs to improve our efficiency.
My second co-op at Ortho Clinical Diagnostics, exposed me to a multi-national corporate environment. There, I performed system verification and validation on a new blood analyzer we were producing, and I had to ensure that our test limits were in compliance with FDA regulations.
My last co-op was at a small startup company called Savant Systems, which produces high-end home automation equipment. I was one of three QA engineers responsible for defining daily regression tests and ensuring quality with the software and hardware that we shipped. In fact, one of my major responsibilities was performing final test procedures on our flagship product, a $35,000 home controller, before it was shipped to our customers.
My first full-time job out of college was at Fidelity Investments as a Software Engineer. I started out at Fidelity by participating in the inaugural Leap IT Development program. This was a six month program that oriented me to the company and the financial industry, with the intent that those who participated will become the organization’s future leadership. I use to split my time between our Boston and Jersey City offices and brought an international short selling platform online.
I then became a Business Analyst at Time Inc. (the world’s largest magazine publishing company). In that role, I helped their brands create new mobile experiences that engaged their readers beyond magazine pages.
After my stint at Time Inc, I joined a startup company called Longtail Video as their Product Manager for the JW Player. This product is one of the the web’s most popular HTML5/Flash video player, and reaches millions of people each day.
