Specifically, I'm a senior interactive producer and design technologist based in Portland, Oregon. In case you were wondering, I look more or less like this:
I'm presently a PM at Opal, where I primarily work on data analysis and visualization projects for our marketing and customer experience teams. Prior to this, I worked as a senior producer at various digital agencies, including AKQA, Mekanism, Domani and Periscopic.
My day-to-day work is centered on the creation of software-driven tools and experiences, as a manager of people, teams and projects. I've been doing this for about eight years, and it's mostly what you'll see reflected on my linkedin.
