Hello 👋
My next available slot is

  • Wednesday 29th Sep5:30 PM (GMT)

Technical product leader currently working on content discovery and growth at Academia.edu. Previously founder of Gazet and on the founding team at Skimlinks. I have over a decade of experience at every stage of the product lifecycle and a dedication to supporting inclusive teams. I’m continuously fascinated by the potential of technology to change the context of human behavior. Building responsible products addressing this requires effective collaboration across varied teams and I strive to bring a sense of curiosity, humility and humor to my work. I’ve found that developing effective products requires sympathetic leadership, continuous customer development, and considered analysis of product use.
