About Dan

I'm a Product Manager, ex-Microsoftie, with extensive technical background. I specialize in defining the product and the user experience. I can code and I can do graphic design. In general, I have a well-rounded set of skills. Depending on the skills of the co-founder I can take a more technical or a more business role.

I'm looking for a co-founder. The main characteristic for me is NOT a specific skill set (e.g. Node.js or Django). Instead, I'm looking for a resourceful, driven and easy-to-work-with individual, who is as committed as I am to the venture. I found the hard way how a misalignment of commitments leads to many problems down the road.

Oh, and I follow the Lean Startup approach, so it's almost crucial that the co-founder is well-versed in this methodology.
