I help companies and their investors get the right products to market

I am equal parts creative, technical and entrepreneurial, with a proven record of bridging business, technology, and desire. Defined by creative energy and informed by deep practitioner experience—driven to continuously improve.

Product and Technology Advisor to Private Equity.

A little secret... I self-identify as a creative. <3!

I'm a Product and Technology Executive and M&A Advisor to Private Equity. A multidisciplinary leader with experience in strategy, product management, app portfolio rationalization, and integration. My most valuable skills are in uncovering and translating customer and stakeholder insights and translating them into actionable plans to deliver highly successful products and solutions.


I’ve spent much of my career driving the conceptual design and development of new products, services, and business offerings, including IoT, commercial, consumer, and industrial solutions; digital transformation; and application portfolio modernization and rationalization.

Relationship Builder.

I am a forward-thinking leader with a trusted global business, design, and technical network.


I foster an agile mindset, instilling a cohesive and accountable culture that empowers individuals to engage in the “why” and “how proactively,” to experiment with iterative designs and prototypes—and test assumptions continuously.

Where I focus my time, professionally.

I am intensely curious and love to experiment. I build highly productive, motivated, and customer-focused teams. I value transparency in all interactions — and I know there is nothing we can't do together…

Lead or managed over 60 exit prep, carve-outs, or add-on deals.

Lead or managed 40+ post-close value creation, transformation, integration, and turn-around engagements.

Lead, managed, and reviewed 600+ buy-side technical due diligence engagements.

Let's work together.

I help companies and potential investors understand what users need, prioritize what to build, and rally everyone around your growth objectives.
