Product Manager seeking a new opportunit

A creative growth and product leader with a passion for music, design, fitness, and tech (especially no-code and Web3).

Currently looking for a new opportunity in product management at an early to mid-size startup in the Series A to C range. I am industry agnostic but seeking a company working on a problem space that interests me with some semblance of product market fit.

I’m a motivated problem solver with a generalist background in marketing, strategy, and product development and a self-starter who strives to continuously learn new skills to improve my effectiveness as a manager and leader. I’m an avid reader of the New Yorker and far too many newsletters and I check Product Hunt on a weekly basis.

In team settings, I bring creative and positive energy always thinking about the bigger picture and new ideas and experiments.

As a side passion project for the past few years, I’ve run a music blog, called Natural Music, to produce high-quality content to help our followers discover their new favorite music [without all the work] that drove up to 40k+ impressions weekly at one point (and managing a global team of 20+ during the pandemic).

I built the site myself using Webflow [naturalmusic.co] and while it lies relatively dormant now due to time constraints it still lives on as an incredible resource for anyone looking to discover some of the most interesting music of the past few years.
