New Dad. Strategy and Product Design guy.

I help teams prioritize what they need to be building to drive growth (and ongoing product-market fit).

Managing Partner at prooflabs Group, a digital strategy and product design studio.

Keynote speaker. Life learner. Optimist.

I am curious and passionate about designing solutions that empower people. As a result, I think a lot about frameworks for problem solving and diversifying the pool of people participating in the innovation economy.

I work on:

Product Defining and Refining

Community design

Building p2p networks

Product-Market Fit Fixing

Rapid Prototyping

Digital Strategy Transformation


I speak and lead workshops on:

Setting up the Basics of Learning

Customer-Centric Design

Future of Work

Currently working on a pet project about independent workers.

Founded Knodes/Simplist (powerful social search tech for targeting messaging) and SnapGoods (early sharing economy pioneer). Lover of connecting good people.

Drop a note if you'd like me to keynote your event. julie(at)
