Welcome to my resume.

I help tech companies identify opportunities, test ideas, and deliver innovative products to drive growth.

  • I am currently a Product Manager with Futrli, a high growth Fintech start-up. I’ve helped build out the platform architecture, delivered the integration roadmap and the actionfeed (as newsfeed) for the MVP product, built in Python on AWS
  • Recent projects have included globalising an industrial SaaS offering for Eurotherm by Schneider Electric, developing partnership-led products for SaaS accountancy startup Crunch and heading product for Sonar, a SaaS analytics platform
  • Previous projects included delivering an API, a greenfield mobile app and managing a 7 product portfolio across APAC for a SaaS construction information service (BCI Media Group),
  • I am fascinated by good design, food, and enjoy travelling across Europe and beyond

Enjoy the read and I look forward to hearing from you.
