About

For the last few years, I have helped organizations and teams to understand why good products are only achieved when we understand our users and market.

Adding value to current propositions and creating new products has been a crucial part of my work.

I have helped teams grow from 0 to 20+ people and my best legacy is to have people stepping up and taking lead or manager positions. Helping people grow and achieve their potential brings me special joy, being in work and in the Scouts.

Owning the strategy, aligning with the exec team on how the vision could be translated to the teams, by giving them the right context and empowerment. I have done B2B SaaS for the last 15 years in multiple verticals, created teams and products from scratch, adapted, created, or help to create frameworks, tools, and processes that allow scaling while keeping a lean and growth mindset.

I thrive and feel alive when I manage to help the team to understand customer pains, listen to what they have to say about their experience and needs. I make use of my soft skills to get the users mixed into the process so we can achieve the best and most successful solution possible, working together with business, marketing, design and development.

Product Management, Team Management, User Experience and getting people networking and achieving common goals are my great loves :)

I have been a speaker in several events and meetups like Product Tank, Productized and I am also a certified trainer facilitating workshops on Design Sprints, Product and UX

Ricardo has been super instrumental in showing me my blindspots. He has such great product thinking as well as an understanding of the human mind! I loved talking to him and strategizing about what was ahead. Thank you so much for everything and for what's to come!
