My business card says such things as Technical Project Lead, iOS Engineer and Tech Journalist. My ambition lies in being entrepreneurial, strategic, and innovative.

As a Certified Scrum Product Owner, I oversee managing and developing various cutting-edge projects within TCL-America, as a mobile project lead, and engineer, managing local and remote teams, with agile best-practices.

I'm a big believer in the lean startup philosophy, lean branding, lean analytics, lean customer developer and the idea of brands being a product of empathy and story narrative, not functionality. Drawing on feelings captivates us and is embedded in our minds and hearts. Specialities include: Project Management, Product Management, Scrum/Agile Management, Swift/Objective-C iOS development, MongoDB development, Lean Startup Management, tech writing, public speaking/presentations, and branding. I am also an avid rugby player and love a good old Aussie steak.
