I'm from Seattle, and now live in Brooklyn after several years in San Francisco.
I currently lead US and UK product development for Wealthsimple. I joined to lead the company's US launch, and have also led projects like our Halal Investing portfolio and our introduction of pensions in the UK.
Previously, most of my experience is in startups. I was on the original team at Tilt (a startup funded by Andreessen Horowitz and acquired by Airbnb), where I developed a core product offering Tilt Pro, going on to power some of the most successful online pre-order campaigns ever. I also led partnerships with companies like Lytro, Soylent, Microsoft and celebrities like Nas and Conan O'Brien. Before Tilt, I co-founded a startup called FamilyLeaf with seed investment from Y Combinator. We were featured in the New York Times, Inc Magazine, USA Today, and elsewhere. FamilyLeaf was acquired by Origami Labs in early 2013.
I have done some writing and video work. Here are a few samples:
Production and creative for a TV show called "Hey, How Ya Doin?" (aired on BRIC, a Brooklyn public access TV channel)
A story about India's budding religious e-commerce industry for New York magazine
A piece on Indian users of Quora for The Caravan magazine
Short video piece for Mic about violent attacks on immigrants
I graduated from Columbia University with a bachelor's degree in computer science, with a focus on digital media & society. You can read a bit more about me in a profile in the Seattle Times (but it's several years old now). I had the best/luckiest first job ever.
