PRODUCT DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT
I am a senior product manager at Dollar Shave Club and a freelance designer and developer. Previously, I collaborated with a team of developers, designers and product managers to build products for one of the most heavily trafficked retail eCommerce websites. I am also the creator of CONSIGN.NYC, a Rails application catering to the high end consignment market in New York City.
As an attorney, I managed teams of up to 15 people working on large-scale litigations. The last trial for which I prepped resulted in a $9 billion verdict (seventh largest verdict in U.S. history). I was named a Top 100 Trial Lawyer in 2014.
