 tl;dr  I researched the hat purchasing retail process and collaborated with creative technologists to design a more pleasant and eye-catching hat-size measuring tool for teenage sports fans buying their first caps.

It doesn’t matter what type of runner you are – beginner, indoor, or hardcore marathoner – Nike+ GPS can help you improve your run.

Nike+ GPS launched in September 2010 and was the #1 paid app in the Health and Fitness category. Overall, it launched as the #2 paid app…only behind Angry Birds. We went on to be App Store App of the Week and joined the App Store Hall of Fame.

The iPhone application allows runners to map their runs, track progress, and engage their Facebook/Twitter friends to cheer them on.

CREDITS

Congratulations to my old team. The time I spent with you has been some of the best times I have had working on a project, and it felt like family. I’ve learned more than I ever had with you all. We won a ton of awards, and all I can say is that I was really just riding all your coattails. As we have mostly split ways since, I find it even more relevant to say cheers again to the original crew.

DISCLAIMER

My role for Nike+ GPS was as a product manager, not UX designer.


tl;dr

I acted as central point of contact for clients and managed the process for a team of 20 UX, visual, QA, and tech members. We executed the first three release versions of the app.
