I'm an experienced high technology Product professional who has a strong combination of both business and user experience expertise, which I use to create and drive strong, user-focused product strategies.
After dabbling in various marketing and consulting roles, I found my calling in product development. I'm currently leading Product in a newly formed Online Shopping division at IAC. Previous roles include Product/UX positions at fellow IAC company The About Group (formerly of The New York Times) and leading mobile strategy at Lionsgate Entertainment. I also founded and organize a monthly user experience meetup group called UXNY, and the annual conference ProductCamp San Francisco. I'm involved in the NYC startup community via NYC Startup Weekend.
