I’ve been working in the Product space for nearly 10 years! That feels wild to say - but with that experience I’m at the point where I love to share and promote product techniques, processes, and mindsets that are proven to help teams ship great software well.

I’ve worked across a diverse spectrum of industries: early-stage healthcare startups and food security nonprofits, enterprise retail and finance giants, even the US Department of Defense. I've seen great ways to manage high-performing product teams, and I’ve observed some less-successful techniques...

I've coached product folks, including agency consultants and their clients, and I’ve also taught 0-1 Lean Product courses on my own as a freelance mentor, curating PM curriculum and workshops myself.

I'm hoping to tell stories using clear missions/visions for product teams to ship great things. I love to have customer conversations, collect qualitative and quantitative user feedback in consistent feedback loops and keep a pulse on competitive markets. I'm good at facilitating decision-making with stakeholders and collaborators in design and engineering. I have a lot of diverse product experience, and I'd like to influence and streamline product ops and processes to find better ways to work.
