About Me

Innovation Management | Business Development | Product Management

I am an adventurous researcher, manager, and product professional. I work with companies both large and small to help them unwrap the personal experiences of their customers and to turn their stories into fresh product insights.

With a background as a developer, I thrive on technical challenges, but push for research that is empathetic to real user needs. By combining customer data with industry trends and personal experiences I help to create fresh ideas with concepts that are feasible, viable, and most importantly - desirable.

Contact me for full-time, freelance, or volunteer positions.
