Perfect for founder CEO types too. Especially the don't over-insert yourself bit.
 
I wrote a thing about what it's like to be a Product Manager. 
a janitor, essentially.

Story
Tagline
Engineering Director and Entrepreneur at Google
Introduction

I've been Engineering Director in Google Canada since 2008 - building teams in Ads, Commerce & Shopping, Chrome, Social and mobile services of many kinds. I joined Google from NeoEdge Networks, an in-game advertising company I founded in 2005.  From 1999-2008 I lived in California where I founded Quack.com (acquired by Time Warner/America Online/Netscape in 2000) and Kinitos - a consumer internet infrastructure company.   I worked as a Vice President of Voice Service and Systems Infrastructure on the Netscape campus from 2000-2002 building such services as MovieFone.  I am proud to be associated with other amazing Canadian organizations facilitating startups such as Communitech and Hyperdrive in Kitchener, and  Omers Ventures in Toronto. 


I proudly hail from Melfort, Saskatchewan - and spend as much of my summer as I can in northern Saskatchewan fishing, golfing, boating and spending time with my family.
