Building World-Class Products & Teams

I help develop product leaders through a series of product management and strategy talks.

ABout Me

I am an Executive-in-Residence, adviser, and coach to consumer tech product leaders in San Francisco, Boston, NYC, and Salt Lake City. 

As the former VP of Product at Netflix, Chief Product Officer at Chegg, SVP Product at The Learning Company/Mattel, and a Producer at Electronic Arts, I have lots of experience building world-class products, teams, and companies.

As a startup adviser, I work with product leaders and CEOs at NatureBox, Life360, SVAcademy, Experticity, and NerdWallet. I'm also a guest lecturer at Stanford, teaching entrepreneurship in the Management Science & Engineering graduate program. 

I also engage in three day/week "Executive-in-Residence, Product" roles to keep my skills sharp.  In 2015, I was EIR Product at the mobile startup, Life360, and in 2016, I was an EIR at NerdWallet, a fintech startup. I am now the EIR Product at Metromile, a pay-per-mile car insurance company that helps customers save lots of money.  

Every six months, I co-host a 100-person product leader event.  In November 2016, I co-hosted the "Products That Count" Exec Event and in May 2017, I co-hosted the Omidyar Network Product Leader Summit.
