About


🧔🏻 For short, they call me Joe G. I work as a senior digital product manager, strategist, owner, and design sprint facilitator. I also like presenting and writing.

🧭 My product style is user-first, LEAN, iterative, always-shippable, data-informed (not data-driven), anti-fragile, pro-transparency, anti-feature factory, clear and concise communication, and early expectation setting.

🧰 I have skills in MVPs, experiments, UX research, agile, scrum, kanban, pods, and (regrettably) waterfall. I interface well with technical teams, legal folks, and strong-willed executives.

🛠 My favorite product activity is forced priority ranking. Second is six thinking hats.

🙌 I do collaborative whiteboarding, sticky notes, user flows, wireframes, and jira. When it comes to working with fellow developers and designers, I know my way around html, css, javascript, github, (did a developer bootcamp), sketch, invision, XD, and figma.

🍕 Big fan of the two-pizza team.

💙 I consider myself a servant leader. I have managed other product managers and business analysts. I also support fellow team member "hearts and minds" through soft skills like active listening, empathy, alignment, transparency, and advocacy.

💻 The projects I do usually include web and native mobile apps for blockchain, cryptocurrency, IoT, telematics, and maps.

🌿 Lately, I am really interested in sustainable, eco-friendly, privacy-focused, and mindful products.

🎨 Outside my remote day job, I like oil painting.
