Hello 👋
My next available slot is

  • Monday 13th Dec7:30 PM (GMT)

I have tackled the complex world of product across a number of industries and companies, most recently Xero in New Zealand. I provide product leadership to teams so they can build great products that drive customer outcomes. My experience and knowledge has been built in product roles across some of New Zealand’s top technology companies. I have lead products to market within ecommerce and SaaS business, along leading product discovery, ideation and validation as part of the innovative thinking required to help businesses with new product ideas from a consulting perspective. Through my time in the product world, I’ve learnt that creating successful products is hard. This is my motivation to mentor others and help to understand and tackle the challenge of finding the strategic balance of solving customer problems, while delivering business value. When not working to pull together the elements that create the magic of product success, you will most likely find me tackling my never-ending list of projects around the house, trying to master some coffee art or taking the dog for a walk.
