I’m an experienced Product Owner with a demonstrated background of working in SaaS platforms, mobile applications, corporate platforms and E-Commerce. I tend to focus on the technical implementation of projects and collaborate closely with developers and engineers.

I’ve built and managed teams across multiple time zones of both 3rd party developers and internal developers. I’m hard-working, passionate about what I do and I have an eye for detail.
I’ve worked on headless platforms, infrastructure solutions, white label applications, SaaS solutions and cloud solutions.
Most of all I’ve come to love the agile/scrum methodology, and the close collaboration with your team that comes with the approach.

What people say about me

  • I got to know and work with Davey at Vinivia. Davey is a great guy to work with: he's very approachable, has great ideas, is open to feedback, and challenged me, which I loved! Together, we soared. He has vast domain knowhow in e-commerce and UX/UII design (just two examples), yet at the same time he is very hands-on when it comes to getting things done, like e.g. improving Jira setup, integrating ProdPad into the toolchain, or documenting in Confluence. He has a solid understanding of what works and what doesn't when it comes to Scrum/Kanban and he has what so many others lack: years of experiences "in the trenches", which is a huge asset. In short: if you ever have the privilege to work with Davey, you will not be disappointed, he is a seasoned PM!
