isaac_kids I’m an internet product and marketing leader based in Montreal. I’m currently an Entrepreneur in Residence at Real Ventures. Previously I led product at Flatbook and Frank and Oak, two high-growth, Montreal-based startups. Prior to arriving in Canada, I spent 6 years in Singapore working at Pollenizer and Yahoo and completing an MBA at INSEAD. I began my career in New York,  building educational technology and games at Scholastic and leading sales for a dot-com startup. I’ve also spent a year at the East West Center in Hawaii and a year studying in India. I have a BA from Columbia in religion and philosophy. I was born and raised in Amherst, MA.

Professionally, I’m passionate about finding better ways to build, distribute and scale technology products and services. A classic “non-technical product manager, my strengths are as a communicator, team leader, and problem solver.  I’m especially comfortable dealing with data, shaping product strategy, solving UX and UI problems, and orchestrating product execution. I also love speaking in public and mentoring startups. 

When I’m not working or hanging out with my family, I like to play disc golf, tennis, basketball, cycle, organize cool events and root for the Sox/Celtics/Pats and these days the Habs, (unless they’re playing the Bruins). You can find more about me on Twitter and Linkedin.
