Andy’s Product Management Qualifications

Experience level: Product Manager

1. I'm currently a Sr. Product Manager at Varo and graduated from UC Berkeley. 2. I've worked on products at various-sized companies, ranging from a high-growth Series A FinTech startup to big tech. 3. I switched from investment banking to product management during my senior year of college not knowing what could happen (scary, right). I was able to leverage everything I learned about recruiting toward my product journey and became a Product Manager at Square within ~1.5 years of graduating knowing nothing but traditional finance.

About Andy

Hi! Welcome to my page - here's a bit about me: 1. I'm currently a Sr. Product Manager at Varo and graduated from UC Berkeley. 2. I've worked on products at various-sized companies, ranging from a high-growth Series A FinTech startup to big tech. 3. I switched from investment banking to product management during my senior year of college not knowing what could happen (scary, right). I was able to leverage everything I learned about recruiting toward my product journey and became a Product Manager at Square within ~1.5 years of graduating knowing nothing but traditional finance. Whether its product management or investment banking, I remember how chaotic of a recruiting experience it was. Specifically knowing how to approach these types of interviews is an underestimated aspect that both fields share. Having interviewed with 150+ companies, I will guide you through the process in the most straightforward way possible. No BS. Looking forward to meeting you!

Why do I coach?

I coach because I've been in your shoes—I made a challenging career transition from finance to product management without proper guidance. It was tough and lonely. Not knowing whether or not you're going in the right direction is arguably the scariest part of this process. Coaching matters to me because I understand the importance of having a supportive guide to navigate career transitions. While I didn't have direct mentorship during my transition, I learned firsthand the value of mentorship in overcoming challenges and accelerating growth. I'm passionate about providing the support and guidance others need to succeed. Let's work together to overcome challenges, develop skills, and achieve your goals!
