Resume

I’m a product management professional with more than 20-years of work experience. My career has taken me across the globe to fill a variety of roles in a breadth of industries. My passions include applying technology and innovation to solving traditional problems, sharing my experiences through writing and interviews, and committing to making my community a better place for all who live in it.

My accomplishments include improving the landing experience of +1 Billion users of trivago.com, building a publishing platform for journalists in Central Asia, and being an album photographer for the White Stripes. All of which also makes me a great storyteller.

When I’m not on the job, I spend time engaging with my community through my Rotary Club, traveling as much as possible, blogging about my experiences, playing the drums, and cycling.

My 5-year goals include writing another book, speaking at conferences, and acquiring permanent residency in Germany.

Current visa status: Deutschland, beschäftigung gestattet bis 6/2021.

Recommendations

Here are a few recommendations I have received. Contact me for more information.

Mr. Moore shows his motivation and professionalism as a trainer and innovator of community information services. Kyrgyzmedia.com became a well-recognized cooperation platform for traditional media outlets including the Public Service Corporation in Kyrgyzstan. [He] has shown broad abilities in the strengthening of media pluralism, building institutional capacities of media NGOs and outlets.

Under conditions which many would consider unbearable, Judson not only found a way to try something new, but he was the driving force behind making it flourish and securing funding from the United Nations, which promises the project's success for years to come.

Judson took active part in pioneering new direction in our journalism activities. Judson started a project of community multimedia centers, which by now received more than $300,000 in funding from UNESCO, EC and UNDEF. Judson understands the country better than many local people. He is also able to lead and report on most complex project according to stringent requirements of international donors.

Judson left a large legacy in Kyrgyzstan. I had a deep respect for Judson's passion and commitment to free speech and social justice in the Kyrgyz Republic. He adapted well to the culture of Kyrgyzstan, learned the languages, and developed many local friends. His accomplishments with local media were substantial and lasting.

At Mutual Mobile, Judson managed several crucial projects for the executive team, using creative strategies to ensure success. When given high-level concepts, he was quickly able to distill them into tactical and actionable items, which provided tremendous value to our company.

Judson was able to lead complex projects with many moving parts, variables and targets. His pursuit of excellence allowed him to execute projects flawlessly and lead others to accomplish their goals and tasks. He has a way to rally people, get them on side and aligned with goals.
