Helping teams create software

I'm a product and project manager with programming and management experience in Ruby and the Rails framework as well as C# and the .NET framework.

What I Do

I am a co-founder of Manifestly: Checklists for Teams. A SaaS for helping teams achieve better repeatability, visibility and dependability in their recurring processes.

I have over 15 years experience in usability, agile software development, and product management. I've been a developer, product manager, project manager, and founder of SaaS startups as well as leader of several large enterprise teams.


Previously, I was the product manager of Murfie Music and a software project manager at the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families.

Prior to that I was the product manager for Hashrocket and managed their SaaS business.

For many years I was a software project manager at the Wisconsin Department of Financial Institutions, where we created all the software for creating LLCs in Wisconsin as well as filing annual reports and the UCC lien system. I was instrumental in all applications.

In the distant past, I was a re-engineering and supply chain consultant for what became Accenture Consulting.

Community Involvement

I am passionate about making a difference in my community. I have tutored children and adults throughout my adult life and community activism is a primary focus of my "free time".


I enjoy working with great teams who are working on software that will improve the world. Send me a note or download my resume.
