I have over a decade of experience applying behavioral science to business strategy, product management, and design. Across startups to enterprise to public sector, I’ve worked in areas like chronic disease management, voter turnout, mental health, and retirement savings.
Teams I’ve worked with include at least a 16 startups that have exited, backed by top investors like Founder’s Fund, YC, NEA, and True Ventures. I’ve also worked with enterprise companies like SalesForce, government projects like Obamacare, research teams @ UCSF and Harvard, and fintech orgs like Common Cents & Irrational Labs.
By my count, 18 of the ~40 startups I’ve worked with have exited (20 still active)
A majority of the organizations I’ve collaborated with have been startups, but a majority of the time and experience was in the public sector or enterprise space.
