I am a product leader with a deep track record and experience building innovative media, hardware, and other consumer products, currently leading Product & Technology in the WarnerMedia Innovation Lab.

Most recently, as interim CPO of Joyn (the Hulu of Germany), I worked with the product development organizations to launch their OTT streaming service. I was also responsible for Board and company-wide product strategy presentations, and building the product organization.

At CNET I led the product management, social and audience engagement teams at the world’s largest tech publishing company.

Prior to CNET I led product strategy at Viggle (after they acquired my startup Dijit), mapping out a vision amidst a TV industry facing tremendous change and upheaval.

I was the first VP of Product Management for Sling Media, makers of the Slingbox (acquired by DISH for almost $400M in 2007). I was responsible for the Slingbox from concept to launch, taking the founders’ vision and shaping it into a working product. This included building all original SlingPlayer PC/Mobile software, and the hardware.

As an entrepreneur, I’ve built and sold several startups, including
– Dijit, a hyper personalized smart TV guide, acquired by Viggle in 2015.
– Legacy Locker, the first online will, acquired by PasswordBox/Intel in 2013.
– Nudgemail, the only all-email-based reminder system that works with every email service without any downloads or plugins.
– Mediabolic, the first connected home software platform, acquired by Rovi in 2006.

I’ve also been a product UX consultant for:
– Dropcam (designed the new user / on boarding experience)
– Boxee (developed and executed go-to-market strategy)
– Bug Labs (worked on both product/marketing plans)

I also sat on the steering committees for DLNA and UPnP AV. I have a BS from Carnegie Mellon University, am a father of 3, and am passionate about sustainability, board games, and hockey. Go Habs!
