In short, my absolute best. I'm not interested in slow onboarding processes and low expectations. That's why I'm a freelancer and consultant.
I'm looking to drive tangible outcomes for you and your company. The intensity of a critical go-to-market, the thrill of guiding a team towards user-centricity, that's what keeps me going. And I mean that in a non-ironic way.
My focus over the last year has been product discovery and validation. Meaning, I help out with the earlier parts of the product development cycle.
Simply put, most companies do not struggle with delivery. They are struggling to find out what to build, and most importantly what not to invest in.
Ship more user value for less $ or €.
My clients and I realised that using me in both
(a) hands-on discovery work, as well as
(b) coaching the existing team towards more user-centricity and faster iterations
brings with it the highest leverage for long-lasting impact.
Does that sound like something your company could benefit from? Let's get on a 25min call to see if we are a fit.
That being said, I studied Computer Science, I still code on most weekends. I love delivery challenges.
Here are some testimonials from real people. Feel free to reach out to them to verify.
What others say about my work
I've had the honour to work with some great people. Here's what they said after I delivered the results for them. Disclaimer: These are all real people and I didn't pay for any of these testimonials.
