I am customer-obsessed
I believe that the transformation of business is necessary, because people want connection, they want relevance, and they want to be empowered. For me, creativity and technology can meet diverse needs, whether that’s a customer (or an employee), both should be treated with the same care and respect for their experience in the digital environment in which they are interacting.
I build high-performing teams
In business, people are the greatest asset. My servant-leader philosophy helps me to recruit and build high-performing teams, empowered and energized by the work they do, and knowing that it makes a difference for the organization.
I create award winning apps
Over eight awards and honors for the Alaska Airlines mobile app and a five-star rating that was the best in the travel industry. With regard to enterprise mobile products, we had a conversation with Apple about our employee apps, and they were telling us that we were light years ahead of anyone else in this space at that time.
What else do I do?
I’m a family guy with a bunch of amazing kids and one granddaughter. I love cars and bicycles, and nearly anything with wheels. And when not working in on digital products people love, oil painting is my other creative outlet.
My paintings have been shown in various locations around the Seattle area over the last few years, and currently can be seen at Sightglass Cellars in Woodinville, WA.
