10+ years of scaling Product & Operations for Marketplaces 🚀 ex-Uber, 2x founder

Builder & operator, product and people leader.

I work with Marketplaces at the intersection of Product and Operations. I firmly believe that best products require best execution, so my mission is to help you close the gap between product strategy and what you actually deliver to your clients.

I'm currently advising startups in carsharing and fintech, and open to fractional CPO/COO roles with Marketplace startups.
