I was a software engineer for 10 years before moving to product management in 2015. I worked at 5 tech startups: Akoha, Hunch, Phosphorus, Nautilus Labs, and Draftbit. Through the acquisition of Hunch, I also spent 4 years at eBay.
I started a SaaS business, Fitmeal, as a solo founder. It didn't work out but it reached 4,000 people and taught me about entrepreneurship. I've made other products since, most of them around data and APIs.
I like to break down product management into 3 fundamental questions. What to do? Is it done? Did it work? That separation of concerns has been a pivotal insight in my career. I write about my process here.
