My core responsibilities included: Ownership of all go-to-market and user acquisition strategies for new products, retention and customer analysis, working with my team to ideate, build, launch and scale three new products, all of which continue to grow.
Founder, Snaggies
Snaggies was a daily deal marketplace I cofounded after finishing University. We provided a cost effective marketing solution for the merchant, while providing a plethora of savings opportunities to the consumer market.

My partner and I managed to scale the business to 6 figure revenues within 8 months of operations. We were successfully acquired by Offeron Media Corp within our first year.
What I'm currently looking for
I'm currently accepting contract positions up to 6 months. I'm also open to the right permanent opportunity with a company that is product focused, passionately cares about user experiences, customers and sustainable data-driven growth.
Education
Honors. Philosophy & Political Science, McMaster
I successfully completed a combined major in Political Science and Philosophy. My original intention was to attend Law School at the University of Toronto, fortunately I instead chose to take the technology entrepreneurial route.

Publications
Here's some things I've written. There's not many yet but that's going to change.
I grew up in Toronto, Canada. After completing a combined HBA in Philosophy and Political Science at McMaster University, I had intended to attend law school but ultimately chose not to.

Instead, I built a daily deal startup and grew it to six figure revenues within 8 months. I then sold that startup to Offeron Media Inc and moved to Beautiful Vancouver, BC to continue building new products with the team.

Over the last 7 years I have successfully helped companies, including my own, move from concept to scale. I enjoy data driven growth, solving real problems and building products that people love to use.
