I'm Phil Batzner - I work at Northwestern Mutual as Product Owner, and am a Marquette University alumnus.
I’ve been a witness to the evolution of the Internet throughout my entire life. Since I was born the year the Internet was created, I’ve never known what it was like to live outside a digital world. I was fortunate to grow up in an entrepreneurial household where I had the opportunity to learn innovation first-hand, fueling my passion for creating at a young age. As long as I can remember I’ve been creating—whether personally or professionally—and with my background in digital + my current endeavors in product, I keep creating. I keep building.
Now, I'm fortunate to work in technology where I use creative problem solving to identify, build and produce solutions for users to enhance their lives. As an advocate for purposeful innovation, I find myself prepared for what the unknown, yet to be discovered technological future holds.
When I'm not exploring the world or loving life in MKE, you can most likely find me DJing , enjoying a juicy burger, wearing bow ties and capturing life's moments through a camera.
Take a look around the rest of my website and portfolio, and I look forward to hearing from you in the future!
