I am an experienced Product Owner, believe in shipping early and often and am responsible for projects with budgets ranging from 100K to 5M. My expertise is rooted in the areas where technical knowledge supports innovative thinking. I love to surprise stakeholders with out of the box ideas that compliment their story. 

Trying to find a healthy work life balance, I love to travel the world and discover new diving destinations. Always looking for new experiences, opportunities and people, I hope you will get in touch!
