How I like to work with people
As an Advisor

I am extremely creative, with a great vision when it comes to defining products, fitting those products to the market, finding monetization strategies and figuring how to execute to reach targets.

I bring know-how in product management and development from inception to market and beyond and I have the touch to bring in just enough structure to be successful without sacrificing innovation or fluidity.

If you would like to work with me, then pitch your ideas and vision to me as you would to an investor. If you can turn me into a believer then I would be happy to work with you.

For me, the initial ideas and vision are important but so is the quality of the founding team. There needs to be passion about the project, the skills to execute and stay focused, and respect between the founders.

I am open to advisory relationships of any kind ranging from lighter to heavier commitments.
