I like making thingsbecause I valuepeople
I am a product manager, currently working with the good people at Postlight in New York City. Before that I worked as a product manager for the design-first digital product agency, New York Ave. During that time I have also worked part time as a facilitator of design sprint workshops for The Dali Museum Innovation Labs in St. Petersburg, Florida.
is good but it's people who have most shaped me.
I do the work I do because I value people and believe business and technology can be leveraged as a force for not just doing well but for doing good for people and the life systems on which we rely. Lofty, sure, but it keeps me going.
To that end, I started a Meetup to talk about some of the things above called Wait But Why NYC, co-founded and sit on the board of an org teaching social enterprise at Stetson University called Ethical Incubator, participate in an international community of enterprise-minded changemakers called StartingBloc and another one called Global Shapers, an initiative by the World Economic Forum to bring together young people driving dialogue, action and change.
I do unconventional things.
In the last few years I began practicing and performing improv comedy at SAK Comedy Lab in Orlando, lived and worked on a sailboat, volunteered on a vineyard and olive farm in Tuscany, teleported around Scotland and Wales, and drove around Sicily looking for long "lost" Italian family with my father (spoiler: we found them). I like languages, particularly French, Italian, and Spanish and I know a few words in goat (learned on the Tuscan farm).
