With over 9 years experience creating products, I am an experienced product leader. I am a strong business analyst; ensuring products I bring to market are strategically and economically aligned with the company’s vision while providing a delightful user experience. I’m also extremely technical, accurately assessing the workload of projects while working closely with engineers to align technical and business requirements. I work to bring new products to market that drive company growth.


Strong PMs will always rely on a balance of empathy and systems thinking to get their job done.
