Head of Product
For me, no challenge has ever been too big or too complex to solve, which is probably why I couldn’t resist joining Explorate to change the international freight industry. At the core, I’m a tech guy with a methodical approach to developing new solutions with a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over many years working with some of Australia's fastest growing startups & businesses in their niche. With degrees in User Experience Design & Technology and experience in data-driven marketing/growth, I connect customer requirements with product features, being heavily involved throughout the process. For fun, I’ve hiked to Everest Basecamp and survived a blizzard in the Arctic on snowshoes and snow dogs.
