After 6 years at Pebble, a pandemic, and almost 2 years learning the ins and outs of both sides of the diamond trading business, I decided to take a short sabbatical.
I reserved some of the time to sort out what I wanted to do next. I decided that for the time being, I want to work with early stage companies and provide direct value in a way that jives with the org's capital and growth plans.
I miss the hustle and excitement of building something new or helping something nascent blossom, and I’m psyched to be doing that work again. So far so good - it’s been really awesome working directly with founders, getting hands-on with product / UX design, and giving notes and product roadmap feedback for investor decks.
