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 a graduate-level entrepreneurship course at Stanford.

Every six months I co-host an invite-only 120-person Product Leader Summit.  The next two are November 15, 2018 in Redwood City, CA and May 2019 in NYC. Click here to apply.

My wife, Kristen Hege, is a physician/scientist working to cure cancer, my daughter Kelsey, lives in Boston (and follows Mom's career path) while daughter Brit, a senior at Colby College, has career aspirations more like mine. (Read more about Brit here.)
