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.

Here are some of my favorite essays:

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.

Send me an email if you want to chat about investments, job opportunities, or if I can help with something else.
