Hello 👋
My next available slot is

  • Wednesday 8th Jun5:30 PM (GMT)

Founders and early-stage teams hire me to reach product-market fit faster. As a founder myself (backed by Techstars, acquired by Beyond Pricing), I love the exhilaration and camaraderie of a team racing through discoveries, setbacks, and triumphs. I’ve also been a product leader and engineer at startups and growth-stage companies (Vimeo, Codecademy, Focusmate). How I help: * Learn about users’ motivations and problems * Develop a targeted strategy and roadmap * Ship features that change user behavior
