What are you up to?

After years in the Portland tech scene across various disciplines from technical to relational, I have decided to dedicate the rest of my career to Customer Success.

To that end, I created “Leading Customer Success,” a peer group that spans the West Coast. I love bringing people together to make “The Best CS In The US,” and I’m proud to say our group has a variety of participants from large to small companies involved.

I also co-organize a monthly Customer Success Manager MeetUp called PDX CS. And I am the founder of Portland Customer Success, the first CS focused consultancy in Portland.

Why Portland?

Growing up here, I never expected to end up here. I always hated the rain and winter and, as such, travelled as much as I could in my early career to find that next great city. Except… there isn’t one. The more I travelled, the more I loved Portland and started to realize how special this place is. From the generous and kind people in such a cosmopolitan city to the beach to the Gorge—I love it all.
