I’m a startup founder, writer, and podcast host. I’m determined to help scaling product businesses build the right team. I’ve worked with many different startups, three of which I co-founded, two of which scaled to employ hundreds of people.
I’ve been obsessed with technology since my dad bought me a 2x CD burner in 1999! When I finished my undergraduate degree, I joined a technology leadership program at the leading mutual fund company Vanguard, near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. While in that program, I discovered I loved people, building high-performing teams, and building innovative digital products.
I believe serendipity is life’s sweetest gift, and it led me to Australia over ten years ago. It’s why I spend most of my time introducing innovative product businesses to digital product experts. You never know what person or project will come along and change everything.I’ve worked with Australian Bendigo Bank and built a digital product to keep Australians safe overseas.
I’ve helped a global NGO, World Wide Fund for Nature, refresh its digital product portfolio. My proudest achievement was helping a property tech scale-up to save millions by developing a new digital platform to help people love renting, owning, and managing property.My wife and I and our daughter are collectively citizens of Australia, Canada, and The United States. We work, live, play, and invest in property across all three countries.
