product manager and Public Speaker in Europe

Hire me

I'm a product manager, technology evangelist and public speaker. I currently focus on building the tools used to ensure the availability of Google's global computing infrastructure.

I seek to build technology products that thrive by materially improving the lives of the end users.

I've been a product leader at Amazon, Google, Android, YouTube, and Stripe as well as several other venture startups, and I was also previously an investment banker and technology journalist.

I was the product manager for Android System UI and worked on key features including the lock screen, launcher, notifications system, and system settings as well as the storage and printing frameworks.

While at YouTube I conceived and launched their new shopping platform.

I've spoken and presented at Vidcon LA and London, the global Android OEM summit, YouTube Forge (internal), YouTube Creator pop-ups, and other venues.

I'm a current or past advisor to a number of for-profit and non-profit ventures, including Khali Min cosmetics, InSITE, Maximum Fun, and Takeoff Space.
