I started my career at ENSONIQ. This experience shaped who I am. I worked with an amazing group of engineers and musicians who were truly passionate about the work they did.
My work was on the multimedia team. We designed and built the ENSONIQ Soundscape family of products.
I started in QA playtesting video games. I later moved into software development, focusing initially on the installation software and later moving into Windows NT device drivers.
I ended my tenure there as a Technical Program Manager, which was what we called product managers back then. My focus was on ensuring we were building the right product for key accounts such as Dell Computers and Gateway.
My first professional job involved playing video games for 9 hours a day. After experiencing early signs of brain rot, I decided to teach myself how to write software.
My entire career is characterized by this “why not?” attitude.
I'm currently applying my experience at product development to help early to mid-stage companies develop a “product first” mindset.

On blog posts where I discuss products I may include affiliate links. If you click on one of these links and buy something then I get a teeny-tiny commission. As of this writing I think I make enough to buy a cup of coffee once every couple of months.
I don't get any paid compensation directly to write product reviews. I think that's pretty scammy.
