I am a seasoned product management professional with over 15 years of experience launching and scaling digital products across diverse industries. I have strong skills in developing and executing strategies, creating roadmaps and go-to-market plans, collaborating with cross-functional teams, and ensuring timely and within-budget execution.
As a natural leader, I have excellent communication and relationship building skills, with the ability to convey product vision to both technical and non-technical audiences.

My entrepreneurial mindset has enabled me to create and launch new products and pursue new business opportunities.

In my most recent role as co-founder and director of Urbotask, I co-founded a connected marketplace solution that allows individuals and businesses to interact with each other to list their daily tasks, search for new tasks, and get paid for getting things done. I was responsible for developing and implementing the company’s business plan, leading product development, raising capital, building a team, and managing financial and legal matters. I played a key role in building a strong community of initial users for our product, who provided valuable feedback and support.
