I teach and advise product leaders. Occasionally, I take on three day/week roles to keep my skills sharp.

ABout Me

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

Today, I take on three day/week "Executive-In-Residence" product roles and I am an adviser to consumer tech product leaders in San Francisco, Boston, NYC, and Salt Lake City.  I also teach graduate-level entrepreneurship and product management courses at both Stanford and Dartmouth.

Every six months I co-host a 120-person Product Leader Summit.  The next two are November 15, 2018 in Redwood City, CA and May 2019 in NYC.
