Product Leader, Designer, Investor, & Coach.
I am a seed and growth stage product leader, founder, and hacker based in Red Hook, Brooklyn, NY.

I truly care about listening to customers, fostering effective cross-discipline communication, paying attention to detail, promoting great design, and maintaining a positive outlook.

As a founder, fractional leader, or a member of seed/growth stage teams, I have played a pivotal role in planning, design, engineering, and marketing of '0-1' products that drive revenue and build competitive advantage.
