Platforms and Distributed Systems | Tinkerer | Amateur Computational Linguist |


I am a Software Product Manager.
Professionally, I have worked in the identity and access management space, consumer lending space, and second language acquisition space.
Personally, I research the role of technology (like AI) in second language acquisition.

Things I believe in Product Management:

A lot of cool innovations start from taking a solution and then finding a problem. Many cases, technology precedes theory.

I don't like the crawl, walk, run mantra. Implies that the solution will run. I prefer nail it before you scale it or gotta survive before you thrive.

Build great systems and environments and teams to let great products happen.

Be willing to lose a little in order to gain a big payoff. Agile is a good mindset.

If your product is already successful, purposely break it to make it better.
