I’m an award-winning team lead, an ex-COO of a profitable startup, and a world-class GIF communicator.

Luckily for you, I’m currently available for a new challenge: my goal is to find something meaningful to work on for years to come.

I enjoy doing things that have a real impact and serve a bigger meaning than just earning a paycheck. I’m excited about building internal structures that maximize impact while minimizing headcount.

And that’s exactly what I’ve been doing for the past five years.

My last two projects included creating the world’s first digital student identity with Frank Students and the beloved surplus food marketplace with ResQ Club.

I tend to think I’m pretty good at model and systems thinking, absorbing information and synthesising it into actionable knowledge, as well as communicating myself clearly to others.

I expect my peers to share a mindset for continuous improvement and to have high standards for fairness, integrity and transparency.

If you think you or someone else could be better off working with me, please send me a message or introduce me to that someone using this email template. You can also help by sharing this page in relevant channels.

All help is much appreciated, so thank you already in advance!
