Director Product Management

My Role

As Director of Product Management, I work on the phases that bring a new LogRhythm product to market. I research market and customer needs, present the product portfolio roadmap, do competitive and financial analysis, work with the legal team to define new product terms, help the sales team close strategic opportunities, and set new product strategies with the executive team.

My Story

From the mid-1990s through the mid-2000s, I worked in Silicon Valley as an engineer and product manager in the semiconductor industry. I contributed to projects including electronic games, HDTV, optical networking equipment, and the space shuttle docking system. I later moved to Boulder, Colorado where I’ve led product management groups and worked as a product manager for companies building internet-deployed software-as-a-service (SaaS) products such as smart energy and Internet of things (IOT) platforms, software-defined storage, and enterprise productivity tools. I’ve worked in small start-ups as the first and only product manager and multibillion-dollar companies with thousands of employees.

I joined LogRhythm over a year ago because I believe LogRhythm is solving an immediate and critical problem. The need for threat detection and management is increasing as more businesses grow their internet presence, cloud deployments, and e-commerce revenue. I wanted to be part of an amazing team that’s involved in building the solution.

Like many people in Boulder, I ski when it’s too cold to bike, run, or swim. My favorite “hobby” is Boulder Bike to Work Day. Each year on that day, Boulder companies give out free breakfast. All I have to do is ride a few miles to work — something I do anyway.

My Philosophy

“Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex … It takes a touch of genius, and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.” - E. F. Schumacher
