Investment @USV. Creator of @FiftyApp. Formerly Product Manager at @appsfire.
I graduated from Vassar College with a degree in Cognitive Science and began my career in neuroscience research. I design and code, with Twenty Four app among my side projects.
Prior to USV I was a Product Manager at Appsfire, based in Tel Aviv. I lived in Tel Aviv for five years. I dearly miss slipping on a pair of sandals and meeting a friend at a café in Bazel Square with ten minutes’ notice.
A long time ago I also worked at Joost. In a previous life I was a research technician in an auditory neuroscience lab at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
Journalist-enthusiast turned product manager in training. Lover of language, logic, and emerging mediums. Never settling, always pushing to learn more.
I’ve always believed there is something transformative and personal about words. They take people places — make the intangible seem real. Organizations have the duty to educate people about their community and allow individuals to be known by their community through insightful content that clearly resonates.
Every error and inability to truly understand an organization’s ecosystem — customers, prospects and those just looking for industry-related info — degrades that connection.
What journalism is and what it can be evolves with technology. With strong technology savvy, design, graphics, editing and reporting experience, I understand how all these components funnel together. I create seamless packages that engage audiences.
I make sure abstract concepts have names, feelings and personalities.

His classic essay How to Hire a Product Manager became the playbook for a generation of PMs. He’s also the reason donuts and product management have become synonymous. You can find all of his writings at kennorton.com. His favorite donut is the old fashioned.

A born and bred academic who asks why at every opportunity. This drives me to keep the needs of the customer in focus for all that we do and for all that I ask others to do. I have fallen in love with product management because it challenges the individual in the role and the company when they choose the right individual. It is neither a place for complacency or acceptance. It is a place for dreaming the dream and understanding where the day-to-day can take you… and then it is rising above and asking for the dream anyway.
