What I write about on the internet
Writing helps me clarify my thinking, make better decisions, and connect with interesting people online. I write everything from deep dives to short Tweet storms and everything in between.

Dive a little deeper:
For my day job I'm a Senior Product Manager where I lead designers, marketers, and engineers to build consumer digital products.
I like to tell people I’m an unapologetic generalist. I feel most alive when collaborating with good people to solve hard, interesting problems.
Here are some things I'm proud of:
- Led a complete redesign of our flagship mobile app from early idea to
shipped product, driving over 10,000 5-star App Store reviews
- Launched 2 subscription businesses on iOS 🤑
- Increased new app downloads by 52% YoY
- Increased new accounts by 28% YoY
- Increased active users by 26% YoY
When I'm not building products I'm usually reading, travelling, or cooking for my family and friends.
I love meeting new people, and I'd love to hear from you.
