A few things about me...

FatherAthleteBuilder FreelancerLanguage learner Founder
My journey so far

I spent the majority of my career at Uber. First launching markets and hiring lots of Operations & Marketing managers to manage the P&L for the U.S. Southeast Region. I then moved to London where I ended up as Head of Product for EMEA region focused on transforming the Driver Experience to mitigate legal & regulatory risk. I now am focused on launching an 'AI for language learning' product called Lingostar.ai and being the best father I can be to my son.
