Best Buy
Sr. Product Manager - APIs
Greater Minneapolis-St. Paul Area
I spent a decade in startups before joining corporate life at Best Buy - and the adjustment wasn't as frightening as I'd been told. I started off thinking that having an API just meant an HTTP endpoint that served JSON, then I went to the opposite end of the spectrum thinking all APIs had to be pure RESTful designs - right now I'm somewhere between the two positions.

I believe strongly in open source, both consumption and contributions. My strongest belief that I like to talk about is the power of community. No matter what you're making nor who you make it for, staying engaged with your community is critical to everyone's success. I run an API meetup in Minnesota, and I love talking about everything from designing APIs to consuming them to promoting them.
