Product Manager & Entrepreneur
I build product at Shopify and teach product management at General Assembly (Bitmaker). I co-founded ParseHub, a powerful data extraction app, used by thousands and launched Cansbridge, a not-for-profit that empowers global and entrepreneurial students.
I worked in Beijing, Toronto and remotely from Europe. I’m always interested in hearing about new ideas and opportunities to build something cool. Get in touch!
My journey building things
Ecommerce platform for selling online or in person
I'm a product manager on the Marketing Technology team building products that help merchants make their first few sales in eCommerce. I lead our product partnership and integration with Google. I launched the Google Shopping channel with 43 team members and stakeholders and contributed to the vision of our advertising products and strategy.
Easy to use web scraping and data mining solution
I co-founded and bootstrapped a data mining software-as-service start-up from a basement to 12 employees. We grew ParseHub to 7 figures in annual reoccurring revenue, 200 paying customers like JP Morgan & Chase and Walmart and were featured in Forbes, Huffington Post and Programmable Web. I lead product design, management and growth and built out our operations, sales, customer support and marketing processes from scratch.
International launchpad for entrepreneurial students
Launched a 501c3 not-for-profit that runs a summer internship program sponsoring 15 university students a year to find jobs in Asia, and a conference connecting students with entrepreneurship in San Francisco. Grew the Fellowship from 1 to 25 universities and a 5% application acceptance rate.
App matching like minded people with activities
First entrepreneurial project I started right after graduating from Queen's University. I learned UX, front-end development and how to outsource & manage product development. We won $70K in awards and grants, signed 40 businesses and brought 300 + people on awesome activities. Not active.
