Performance, attention to detail & transparency
I am a builder. I work with teams to develop and continuously improve digital marketing products and services. My leadership and project management are defined by the team, continuous improvement, and the spirit of challenge. I use data to drive sustainable quality improvements and ensure efficiency.
I am the kind of person that prepares his clothes for the day, the night before. One of my earliest childhood memories is that I could not go to bed until my school bag was packed with all the text books and notepads I would need to for the next day, in the order I was going to need them, and all my pencils were sharpened. This drive for order has given me a lot of freedom and has helped me create frameworks and programs that outperform and scale. I believe in creating models that push the limits of productivity and performance while creating transparency for stakeholders.
I construct operating models that align with goals and capacity and provide visibility for stakeholders. I guide the process through the entire life cycle from research and roadmap to production and performance tracking. I identify and resolve pain points and maintain high standards of execution and agility.
