Product @ Zaapi | E-Commerce | Data Analytics | SaaS | UX Design

Passionate about turning the good into the great (or by failing and iterating until it does), and launching from the ground up. Building products is my passion as I can apply both an methodical and creative mindset to solving problems. Overall, steering a team and having ownership over a product’s outcomes are incredibly rewarding, especially when I can measure a tangible, positive impact on people’s lives.

From product management to data analytics to marketing and accounting, I’m a generalist who does a bit of everything and a lot of adaptation.
