Hello, and welcome to my website. I’m a Product Manager in Denver Colorado. My Ancestors hail from the mighty Mississippi. I largely grew up (10yrs on) in Durango Colorado. I now live in Golden, CO, and no, the irony of living in Golden and being named Golden is not lost on me. I love my state deeply, and can’t really imagine living anywhere else permanently.
I enjoy the luxury of many hobbies. I play video games on occasion, 2D platformers are one of my favorite genres. Megaman 2 was the first video game I remember buying, and I still play it at least once a year, it’s an insanely well-made game, and I love it very much. This hilarious guy explains why Megaman is so awesome, better than I ever could. In my non-digital life, I own a 16′ Cataraft and do lots of what I call “expedition rafting” trips every year. By “expedition rafting” I mean doing multiday trips, spending your nights camped along a beautiful river canyon, and your days on the river navigating both calm and white water.
I’m part of a team trying to build a video game currently called DarkFlow (more of a project title than a release title) in our nights and weekends. Back in college I also participated in a team who tried to build a video game, we got as far as a very playable and fun Beta before starting our careers got in the way.
In my professional career, I have built software for over a decade and a half in one form or another. I have a Computer Science degree and I have spent years doing all of the following, Customer Support, Engineering, and Product Management. My greatest professional passion is creating clarity. I love working collaboratively to uncover problems and solve them. And at the heart of effective collaboration lies clear communication and shared expectation.
