profile from upstate interactive blog

I grew up in the Syracuse area, graduated from CBA. I went on to study computer engineering and philosophy in college. From there, I moved to the Bay Area in California, worked at several different companies, including interactive firms, managing large and complex software development projects.

my recommendation

Everyone gets along in a crisis. Except Ingrid, in a crisis she excels.

Ingrid was, for the entire time we worked together, a creative professional with simple ideas that made a large improvement to Upstate Interactive's bottom line. To cut to the end, by my last day with the company she was managing our first highest valued account and growing our second highest valued to overtake the first.

She embodies leadership from the ground up. Not too often would someone take a Director of Operations role then, when the company needed it, handle day-to-day business that Product Owners at Upstate Interactive do. Everyone gets along in a crisis. Except Ingrid, in a crisis she excels.

I feel better having hired her, yes for the profits, yet beyond that, for the peace of mind. She handled Upstate Interactive's business as well or better than I did as a company owner. And that's just world-changing.
