About me.

I'm the chief product officer at AWeber. I get to work with a team of product managers and designers to create tools and experiences that enable entrepreneurs, bloggers, podcasters and businesses to connect with their audiences in remarkable ways.


I'm passionate about building things that enable people to build businesses around their passions and almost equally passionate about identifying and helping to unlock super powers in product people. The center of the Venn diagram between those passions is an obsession with experimentation as a means for unearthing insights of all types.
