In Brief

Getting To Know Me?

I’m a Product Leader at StackCommerce, a native commerce platform.

I started publishing children’s books and writing about mental models.

I was VP of Product at Sunday Goods, a cannabis startup.

Before that, I was Head of Product at Onward, an anti-addiction app.

My foster care film, Know How, helped pass watershed legislation.

Way back, I directed the gamer documentary Second Skin.

And I also founded a non-profit to curb climate change.

THE WHEN

Me in Numbers

Picture Books

I read stories to my children, every night three to four books. I love this bedtime ritual: seeing their bright faces grow tired and fall asleep. Even though there were hundreds of excellent works, there were stories I wanted to tell Florence and Miles that I never found on the bookshelves. So I started writing and illustrating picture books for them.

THE WHY

Me in a Nutshell

I’m a straightforward human that trusts implicitly and enjoys brainy repartee. I’m happy to chat about the weather, but if you want to go deep, that’s where I like to be.
