Serial entrepreneur. Previously, I co-founded TheRedPin.com and helped get it to be one of Canada’s 50 fastest growing tech startups, raised 10s of millions of dollars and got the team from zero to 160+ strong in 9 years.
Now, with PsychologyCompass.com, we’re on a journey to help knowledge-workers reach their peak mental performance, through our fully automated Cognition Coach.
Prior to TheRedPin, I worked with Canada’s largest academic research lab to help out with re-thinking and re-designing our education system. Before that, I was part of IBM’s market leader product, WebSphere Business Modeler, and was recognized as the employee of the year at the age of 21.
I have my bachelor’s degree in Software Engineering from University of Toronto and have professionally worked both at a Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) as well as a software engineer capacity.
What I’m most passionate about is inventing tech products, building them out and help market them in effective ways.
