About Me

For the last 10+ years, I've been at Facebook where I focused on building both consumer products and engineering orgs at scale. During my time there, I have been responsible for creating and leading cross-functional teams on multiple new 0-1 ventures, such as Instagram Creators and Facebook Groups.
