I am a Berlin based product manager and UX designer with a love for coaching and enabling teams.
Both UX and PM? Well, the short answer is „Yes, based on my experience“. The longer answer is: My history is IxD and visual design. And I think product management is often seen very different by different people. For me, product management and UX design are two sides of the same coin, as I see myself more as a product developer than a business developer. I am a tinkerer by heart, I admit. I worked both the UX and the PM side of the product cycle, but at the end of the day I care for one thing: Build a product while learning about the users and having fun doing so.
If you look for a PM that is half business intelligence I am the wrong person. If you look for someone who likes to be knee deep in the technology, run a crossfunctional team and keep the focus based on our business metrics, I am the right person for the job. I will groome our backlog to be balanced for both success and long term progress and can provide teams with interactive wireframes to prove our assumptions.
My philosophy? I love working with flows and UML and wireframes and lean experiments. We involve the whole team, do our research homework, create some wireframes and start some rapid prototyping. My experience leading crossfunctional teams helps me with both the creation of concepts and the assessment of feasibility of concepts.
