About

By Savannah

Hi, welcome.

In a nutshell, I’m obsessed with improving the world we live in and creating products and services that help do that.

Currently, I’m consulting for a few companies across product, engineering, and operations.

Previously, I was head of product for the hospitality startup SALIDO building a centralized platform for restaurants and bars that created new ways to monetize that data. Prior to that, I was head of product and engineering for all mobile products for LearnVest and Northwestern Mutual working on ground-breaking financial planning tools for middle America. I began my career as an engineer for the consumer productivity app Springpad which rivaled Pinterest and Evernote at its peak.

I graduated from MIT with a degree in electrical engineering and computer science with a focus on human-computer interaction. My passion for technology came at an early age when I broke almost all my toys in an attempt to understand how they worked. Somehow I’ve convinced several people and companies this type of behavior is a good thing.

When I’m not working I’m usually trying to learn new things, right now: baking, weightlifting, piano and portrait photography. I can be bribed with bbq, whiskey, and gummy candy.

I believe supporting others is the greatest gift one can give to the world.
