I help folks turn their ideas into successful apps by combining data, user research, and intuitive design.
I create clear roadmaps for stakeholders and collaborate with designers and engineers to iterate quickly toward market fit.
I sweat the details, using the latest technologies and frameworks to create great experiences for users.

Get answers from real people, fast. Through Jelly, hundreds of thousands of people got answers to their pressing questions on iOS and web, and thousands more answered questions to power our knowledge engine. I was Product Manager at Jelly until our acquisition by Pinterest in 2017.

Jelly Voice

As product manager and lead engineer, I helped expand Jelly's reach so our users could effortlessly get answers over voice interfaces. We launched on the Google Home, then expanded to Amazon Alexa. Watch the video to get a sense of how Jelly worked.


At Nice Mohawk, we built Ita, a list-making app for iPhone and iPad. We loved our list-making app, and shipped two major versions (and dozens of updates) before discontinuing support in 2016.


At Lovely, we made finding a place to live easy and fun. And fast. We used the core Lovely app to power apps for two other related brands, Rent.com and Apartment Guide. My role was mobile lead and, for the Apartment Guide launch, product manager.
