My interests include gadgets, technology, cars, motorcycles, planes, sports, and making a difference in the world – everyday. The most important thing to me is my family, and my relationships with friends, co-workers, and professional acquaintances. I also love making products and experiences people want.

It took me 12 years, but fortunately I did find my career calling in Product Management. It was an uncertain road at times, and I’ve detailed my journey in the, “Career Life” paragraphs below.

Hobbies

I’m an amateur division B bowler. I took a bowling class when I was a Senior in college, and it really helped me develop my curve. So far my high game is a 241 278 and I’ve managed to put up several 600 series since starting league at Cambrian bowl in 2008. For the 2011 -2012 season, I’m holding steady at a 175 average.
