Product/Project Management Consultant
Hi, I'm Steven. As a Principal Product and Project Management Consultant at Cantina, I ensure that we deliver top-notch products. I specialize in working with smaller companies struggling to turn vision into tangible reality, and rescuing products which have lost their way. My claim to fame at Cantina includes PerkinElmer’s ELM Air Sensing Device. I led the initial team that focused on defining the service, branding, hardware configuration and development of the geo-located launch website. I have also worked with the founding members of Your Call Football to define their system iteratively.
Before Cantina, I built and led Product Management groups with a number of startups; all eventually had successful exits. I began my career doing technical support for a medical device startup, where I answered “patient-on-the-table” service calls from neurosurgeons; this prepared me to handle even the most pressure-filled, ambiguous situation calmly and pragmatically.

In the Summers before and during college, I taught rock climbing in the Alps.
