A side benefit of working in product development is getting to use a lot of software tools.
I've built a career by combining marketing expertise with technical ability, which means I can create a marketing strategy, execute it, and measure its effectiveness.
I was hired by Warner Bros in my senior year at USC's film school. I eventually became one of the first non-linear digital video editors, and later a UX designer. At the time, data transfer rates were measured in kilobytes and computer monitors were smaller than an ATM screen.
I was later recruited by Sony Imagesoft PC in Monterey, where I designed CD-ROM entertainment software, including a title that had a 12-year shelf life. After Sony, I took a year off, taught myself HTML, published a community newspaper, and decided to change careers.
I was hired by McGraw-Hill and was lucky to have a remarkable mentor, who taught me traditional marketing and handed me the keys to the company website.
Fast forward two years: I'm a director at Siebel Systems, where I honed my digital marketing skills for six years running a Fortune 500 enterprise website.

I've been lucky to work with excellent mentors, so I encourage continuous learning. Teams that I've managed have consistently been recognized as top performers because they have all increased their value to the company by doing what comes naturally - pursuing an interest.
