There are people you want on your team when you are at peace. Then there are people like me... The people you hire when you are at war. The people you want on your team when you have make it or break it projects. The person you want when it's time to come in under budget AND pre-deadline. I'm a ninja whose done time wearing the hats of product, marketing, legal. I've done it in a variety of fields and a variety of places.
I've take budgets from red to black, I take teams from drama to no-bullshit, I make airplanes fly (literally), and I take ZERO hostages.
I've spread marketing love for all sorts of stuff campaigns. I've lead product teams that build phenomenal apps and websites. I've worked really hard to bring retention, satisfaction and sales higher, when it was mission critical.
Whatever it is, the snoozefest of Higher Education, the zip and attention of start-ups, I choose the tough battles. So far it's worked. Yay me.
