I am a serial intrapreneur and adventure capitalist.
I seek opportunities to grow and apply my skills in product management, engineering, cause marketing, gamification and social entrepreneurship.
To date my career has been focused on information architecture and creating systems that engage and motivate humans. Most recently I was applying those skills building world-class encryption management products at Venafi.
Prior to joining Venafi, I designed and deployed social games and gamified social loyalty programs for retailers, publishers and brands like Accuscore, Fandango and Ice.com. I consider myself a pioneer in creating a new breed of loyalty programs— combining classic loyalty & rewards programs with the social graph, and supercharging the combination with game mechanics.
After earning an MBA and MPP from Pepperdine, I helped Foster Friess create the Private Sector Solutions Network, the goal of which was to coalesce wealthy, influential individuals around political and charitable goals. It remains my personal goal to remake philanthropy and volunteering with social loyalty and gamification dynamics.
My specialties include: information security, social and casual game development, social enterprise, start-ups, public policy analysis, journalistic and business writing, public speaking, industrial automation, contract negotiation, pharmaceutical manufacturing, conflict resolution, customer service, and product management and marketing.
