I’m a Product Manager with 10+ years of digital game development experience. I have released titles on almost every platform from Xbox to iPhone. For the past 6 years I have specialized in Mobile Games, with a focus on business strategy, monetization, and live events managment. Major partners I’ve worked with in the past include: Zynga, Ubisoft, Midway, Cartoon Network, Jack Daniels, Starbucks, and Lionsgate.
I also produced a feature length documentary, Barista, that was distributed by Samuel Goldwyn Films.
I am available for speaking engagements, consulting in digital strategy, and business development. Industry panels and conventions I’ve spoken at include Comic-Con, the Digital Hollywood Summit, and Anime Banzai. I’ve also been a guest on multiple gaming podcasts and for the LA School district on becoming a game designer. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any development or speaking needs.
I recieved my MBA from USC Marshall with a focus on technology and entertainment, and my undergrad at Pomona College. I was also the Academy of Interactive Arts and Science Mark Beaumont Scholarship Award Winner in 2016.
