Hello! Nice to meet you.

I'm Wes, and I live in Dallas, TX. I'm a PhD scientist & life sciences consultant who discovered the world of software product management at a healthcare startup nearly a decade ago, and has served in product leadership roles of increasing seniority ever since.

Over the course of my career I've solved problems of various shapes & sizes, including:
✦ Designing & delivering targeted therapeutics into multidrug resistant cancers
✦ Enabling delivery of convenient & affordable non-emergency medical care to the home
✦ Helping a 700,000 person organization make faster, objective, & more effective decisions across their innovation program
✦ Evangelizing & selling best practices in product management to prospects & customers stuck in old ways of doing product

As a consultant & continuous learner, I know how to rapidly get up to speed on complex concepts & domains. As an analytical systems thinker, I have developed data-informed product strategies that account for second-order effects across the customer ecosystem. Most of my industry experience has been within regulated industries like healthcare and military/government, which pose unique yet exciting challenges and barriers to overcome.

For more information about my work, check out the Projects page or my Articles, Presentations, & Podcast Appearances.
