Product Management is my passion…
I want to tell you a little bit About The Product Nerd…
Hello. My name is Dominic Gadoury and I love Product Management. So much that I’ve spent the last 19 years trying to perfect it in my personal and professional lives (more on that later). This website is about my travels past and present. It’s about all the wonderful lessons I have and continue to learn about this amazing field.
My interest in technology and product management began at the age of 13. My Uncle Ron, a successful sales rep for Texas Instruments, gave me by first computer (TI99). Back in 1983 that was composed of a large monitor attached to a bulky keyboard and a cassette tape player for saving the code. It was on this amazing technology that I wrote my first “Hello World”.
Despite my early interest in technology, I did not make an immediate leap to product. Instead I was a minister, social worker, and EMT before landing my first product job at @ADP (in August 2000).
During my tenure there I have had opportunities to work on many products. My first was a biometric hand geometry scanner. I also was lucky to work on ADP’s first mobile app, and the Lifion platform. Currently, I am leading teams working on building products to solve problems in the Real Estate and Fintech space using our massive aggregated and anonymized data sources.
Why have I created this blog? First and foremost to learn from all of you. I hope that I can provide a landing place for new and experienced product people to interact on cutting edge discussions in our field. I also wanted to provide a platform to provide mentorship, coaching and assistance in product management.
This is also a medium for me to share my thoughts and feedback on products that I believe have strong product management behind.
