The story so far...

I am an entrepreneurial Product Manager with 20 years experience in digital. I have strong professional empathy developed in commercial, sales, marketing and engineering roles. My organisational experience is broad — 1-person startups to government. I have raised funding for 3 startups — evidence of my ability to create and communicate compelling product visions.

I have used my extensive hands-on technical skills to create many side & commercial projects. I am an analytical, creative thinker used to using data to provide clarity in ambiguous situations. For the last two years, I have been consulting while supporting my wife and young family. I am now looking to build digital products that users love in an environment that rewards those challenging the status quo.
