My Story

My journey began as a successful engineer, but I soon found myself yearning for a transition into Product Management. When I finally had the opportunity to prove myself in that role, however, I faced a harsh reality...

I was terrible at it.

Just like today, college majors in Product Management didn’t exist. Everyone in the role was forced to learn on the job, including me. It was out of sheer desperation that I made the decision to be vulnerable with my teammates from Sales, Marketing, UX, Operations, and other functions—the very people I was expected to lead.

I couldn't afford to "fake it 'til I make it."

In that challenging experience, I discovered the transformative power of self-awareness, transparency, collaboration, and open-mindedness. My teammates across different departments became my invaluable teachers, providing their disciplines' perspectives as "customers" in my new role. This process, though humbling, profoundly shaped my highly inclusive philosophies and approaches to product management.

From that initial tumultuous role, I persevered and ascended to the top executive position in Product Management across several market-leading tech companies.

Today, I offer my decades of market-leading experience to help you achieve your product goals efficiently, leveraging my expertise and instilling you with a newfound sense of confidence. Contact me today, and together we can pave a smoother path to success.
