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.

Every year I co-host an invite-only 130-person Product Leader Summit.  The next one is in Redwood City, CA on 9/19/2019.

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 has career aspirations more like mine. (Read more about Brit here.)
