How We Work Together
I consult with early stage startups and entrepreneurs who are building new digital products. I leverage my background and career as a startup product + technology leader to teach founders the fundamentals of building their digital product and get hands on building alongside them. There are a few ways I work with founders:
Informal and Equity Advising
I (limitedly) work with mission-driven founders and advise them in their earliest stages. You receive honest advice.
Best for: entrepreneurs who are still thinking about their big idea.
One-off Product Workshops
I design, facilitate, and conduct a hands-on, intensive product building workshop with a founder and their startup team. You receive a tangible, informative, and user-tested implementation of your idea.
Best for: entrepreneurs who are ready to start prototyping and proving out their product much faster.

Fractional Product + Technology Consulting
I sub in as fractional CTO, CPO or founding engineer. You receive a plug-and-play technical lead to move your product and technology forward.
Best for: entrepreneurs who have a prototype or MVP in hand and want to iterated quickly to get to a robust platform and to get to product market fit.

Background + Testimonials
I’ve been a venture-backed CTO and the founding product and engineering leader to multiple startups across stages and industries. I work with founders and startups where I can provide transformational impact to get them quickly to the next level while learning a lot about their product, their users, and their business. I’ve coach and consulted with founders from:
~ Mina Abdulla (Co-Founder, Elevate | Program Lead, Google)

🔍 Be Transparent - I'll do my part to keep you well informed of any needed changes to our contract, the cause, and your choice of remedies.
🚀 Be Agile - Our shared goal will be product market fit and value for your users, never simply building more.
♻️ Reduce Scope - Startups, by definition, need to think big and start small. My job is to help you do this, and I'll point out opportunities to reduce project scope and build lean whenever I see them.
