I’m a product-driven startup founder.


I’m a South African living happily in NYC, where I came in 2010 to complete grad school in Philosophy at NYU. In 2016 I founded a podcast technology startup, Pippa. In 2019 Pippa was acquired by Acast, the largest global podcast company, where I am now VP of Experience. I like thinking about difficult problems. This is my gifted cat, Babka.
