Hi there. I’m Daniel— a husband, friend, and occasional vagabond. This is my personal website where I write about things I find fascinating like business, tech, and travel.
I’m obsessively curious. I love learning about new verticals, technologies, and strategies– asking questions, connecting the dots, and discovering patterns.
I like to tell people I’m an unapologetic generalist. I feel most alive when collaborating with good people to solve hard, interesting problems.
For my day job, I’m a Product Manager building apps on the web, iOS, and Android. When I’m not building products, I’m likely cooking, traveling, or reading.
My Best Work
Writing helps me clarify my thinking, make better decisions, and connect with interesting people online. I write everything from long, in-depth deep dives to short Tweet storms and everything in between.
Here’s a collection of some of my best writing online:
An in-depth teardown of the strategy behind Amazon’s 2018 Shareholder letter.
Essay published on PM Insider on how to break into product management (talks about high-ownership, creating clarity, and humility in product)
Tweetstorm on what makes a good niche product subscription
A fun essay I wrote on MoviePass’ strategy when they first launched. I was hilariously wrong about so much of it. I assumed too much method to their madness. 🙂
A hot-take with some practical learnings about my first product role.
A collection of things I’ve learned from 99PI/Roman Mars about building awesome products.
