Hi, my name is JP (Real name is Jean-Philippe). I was born and raised in France and have been living in the US for almost a decade now. When in France, they call me “the American” and think I eat burgers everyday. In the US they call me “Frenchy” and think I eat snails for breakfast. Love you all! I have 10+ years of Product Management under my belt working at companies ranging from startups to billion dollars in valuation. Most recently I was at leading the effort on their DNA product. I am very competitive and love to build things that impact people’s lives. I have had the privilege to work with some amazing people during my career and here is my most important learning: "Surround yourself with people that push you to do and be better. No drama or negativity. Just higher goals and higher motivation. Good times and positive energy. No jealousy or hate. Simply bringing out the absolute best in each other" (Warren Buffet).
