I'm an entrepreneur, developer, product manager hybrid. Currently leading the team at Lat Long, where we build digital products for clients in science, travel and exploration. We specialize in guiding clients to new frontiers of their business. We work on both the strategic and technical fronts to evolve nascent ideas into fully developed products. In addition, we've pioneered new WordPress architectures using the latest Gutenberg capabilities for clients like Airstream, Apollo 16 Astronaut Charlie Duke and the LGBT Center of New York.
Previously, I was the tech co-founder of Alumni Spaces, a platform using highly-customized WordPress Multisite networks to manage and empower the local alumni group networks of major universities such as Missouri, Clemson, Florida State, UNC and Virginia Tech. Alumni Spaces was part of the 8th cohort of the Entrepreneurs Roundtable Accelerator in NYC.
Project/Product Manager at Ripple6 (acq. Gannett, '09), joining as the 11th member of a team that grew to nearly 60 in 18 months while building white label social networks for publishing companies. I oversaw our Analytics product and full account relationship + deliverable projects for Meredith Corp, including sites for Parents Magazine, Better Homes & Gardens and Family Circle.
Started my career at Outrider as a founding member of WPP's first social media strategy team. Our mandate was to convince brands like Ford, Nokia and Land Rover that social media was worth taking seriously, back when that wasn't so obvious.
Graduated from the University of Missouri with a BA in Political Science, where I was also vice president of the Missouri Students Association '06-'07.
