Summary

I’m excited about projects, people and products that enable authentic interactive experiences. As a product manager and producer I’ve led teams of artists and engineers to bring great stories to life for clients both big and small including DreamWorks, Activision, Zynga, Telltale, National Geographic, Microsoft, BBDO, GE and Adobe.

 

Strengths

Bringing new products to market by both educating the existing customer base (through webinars, conferences, B2B meetings) and finding customers and strategies to engage a new product categories.

Figuring out what clients need and communicating those needs to internal teams of artists and engineers. I speak both artist and techie and most importantly, customer-ese.

Forming teams of talented people, inspiring them to collaborate, organizing the workflow and resources to make awesome projects happen. And have a great time doing it.

Designing written and visual materials to document both product/project parameters and effectively market to consumers. Seeking out and incorporating customer feedback to improve messaging.

Intimate knowledge of the 3D production pipeline from both the creative side and a budget/bidding perspective. Experience with development cycles for console, online, mobile games and software applications.

Managing workflows in most major 3D software including Maya, 3ds Max, Motion Builder, Zbrush, Lightwave as well as game engines including Unity, Unreal, and proprietary systems.
