Tiger has worked in the digital publishing space for over a decade. His apparent knack for product vision solidified while acting as Director of Programming for Ruckus Network at the green age of 23. While managing the weekly editorial calendar, working with operations for media ingestion, and serving as the main community manager, he built a solid understanding that led to his recruitment into QLOUD, which was later sold to BUZZMEDIA in 2008. Over 6 years at BUZZMEDIA (renamed SPINMEDIA), Tiger product managed and worked on interactive campaigns for over 30 digital properties and UGC sites (including Buzznet, Stereogum, Idolator, TheFrisky, XLR8R, WhitneyPort, and KhloeKardashian). No stranger to women's fashion, he left in 2013 to join CLIQUE MEDIA / WHOWHATWEAR and increased their site traffic 4x over two years while optimizing the user experience and improving retention tools. Tiger's talent lies in his ability to define KPIs, prioritize tasks, and provide a friendly but passionate management style where ideas and results flourish.
Tiger was a captain of his water polo team at The Johns Hopkins University, where he studied Economics.
Head of Product @ Social media has displaced Google Search as the #1 traffic driver into content sites. Top publishers like NY Times, CNN and the Washington Post have significantly adapted their editorial models to account for this shift. Their content, headlines and images are now optimized to entice clicks across Facebook, Twitter and elsewhere.
