My Career Journey
I grew up in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina and attended college in South Carolina where I earned a degree in International Business with honors.
My first job out of college was as project manager and business analyst for an amazing team of developers at HP. We built large-scale web services.
Nerdy Note: We measured call volume in hundreds of millions and billions.
After HP, I became the head product manager at Varigence, a business intelligence automation company. The products I managed help businesses like Microsoft, Barclays, Spotify and Wells Fargo make better decisions with their data.
Around the same time, my founding partners and I launched Nicer, a successful studio that partners with companies to design, build and launch their next product. I later sold my stake in the company.
Alyssa and I then moved to San Francisco where I spent a few years managing products for Ygrene, an industry-leading PACE-financing startup. Early in my time there, I led a team in building iOS and Android apps for our partner network. After that, I was an instrumental leader in a business-wide initiative to stand up a direct to consumer business—strategy, operations, and software solution. Before I left the company, we had grown the direct to consumer business into a meaningful percentage of overall business volume and revenue.
Now I head up growth for Mosaic. My current focus is on strategy and product leadership for growing the home improvement business line.
