Hire me

I am superdad. I married supermom. We battle the evil forces of boredom & laziness.

While at HigherEducation.com/Red Ventures I was instrumental in establishing guidelines, best practices, and continuously improving the remote culture that directly contributed to increasing our EBITDA $40MM+. As the Senior Director of Engineering (Product Development) over the last 8 years, I grew the front-end development team as a 100%, all-remote team by 300% with 90% retention. I really enjoy building teams and helping other grow and progress, and I want to continue that success. Can we arrange an interview to learn more about each other?

I established and utilized a variety of tools for optimizing our 80+ site portfolio. Our lead-gen business relied on conversions, so Google Optimize, Lighthouse, Optimizely, Visual Website Optimizer, HotJar were all part of our winning strategy. Effectively using these tools in conjunction with our Search Engine Optimization tactics (both content SEO and technical SEO) not only kept our sites on pace, but in many cases, outperform expectations as we increased page speed by 70% throughout of our web pages.

My ideal role is one that involves a combination of coaching and team building. I've been growing my teams while working remote for more than 5 years, and would love an opportunity to continue that in a professional manner while utilizing my existing management/team-building skills and potentially some software development. I have the unique blend people are looking for... I know tech and design/UX, I communicate well with non-tech teams, I lead/build/grow teams. One of my biggest beliefs is to never stop learning, and I'll carry that forward as we learn and develop together.
