Previously

As a product manager at Keen IO I was responsible for guiding the core user experience of our web console, apps, and interfaces. I was also the author and core maintainer of our Data Visualization and JavaScript SDKs. I have an extensive background in both experience design and front-end engineering, and will often join project teams in either capacity.

Product Manager, User Experience (Web, Open Source)

In early 2016 I transitioned to a new role as a product manager to guide the evolution of Keen's web console and its various apps and interfaces. I worked closely with our web engineering teams in both a product and design lead capacity. I produced design briefs, specs, mockups and prototypes, and would join in front-end app development as necessary.

Design Engineer (Web, Open Source)

I joined Keen on New Years Day, 2014, and moved to San Francisco shortly after. During this first year I took stewardship over our JavaScript SDK, contributed to a number of high-impact open source efforts, and lead the redesign of our Explorer App, which has since become a critical element of Keen's product offering.
