I'm from Seattle and live in NYC.
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.
Before that, I was on the original team at Tilt (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.
Before Tilt, I co-founded a startup called FamilyLeaf with seed investment from Y Combinator. We were featured in the New York Times, USA Today, and elsewhere. FamilyLeaf was acquired by Origami Labs in early 2013.
Outside of startups, I have done some journalism 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.
