My name is Brooks Grigson and I am currently working as an independent consultant focused on Innovation and Rapid Delivery. My career started in 1997 at i.con interactive a small web agency in Dallas working on websites for the Texas Rangers, Dallas Stars and several other local companies. I moved to Agency.com in 1999 where Land Rover, 3M and others consumed my time until the bubble burst. From there I taught at Baylor University in Waco, TX(yes that Waco) until I returning to Dallas in 2005. After teaching I returned to the web where I worked for Hilton Worldwide. I started at Hilton as a member of the Web Product Team managing site functionality and SEO. I also managed a team responsible for all transaction based emails until I moved into social and mobile product management. Bottle Rocket apps provided an excellent opportunity to work with the best mobile app designers and developers where I was on the team responsible for delivery of the SPG apps for Starwood Hotels. In the summer of 2014 I joined the Propertyware team at RealPage to work on product delivery for their property management software and also delivered a new website solution for their customers.
I am married with two awesome kiddos. When possible I put on my gamer hat and enjoy getting crazy on Xbox One. I’m not necessarily any good, but I do have a blast. The interconnected world we enjoy from web and mobile is my passion and enjoy researching new technology, gadgets and music.
