I'm Scott Cormier, a Product & Growth leader


I love problems. I love learning about them, thinking about them, generating hypotheses on how to solve them, and running experiments to test those hypotheses. I love learning how people interact with the solutions to these problems and seeing how they're helped by them.

I'm an outcome-driven product leader who helps early-stage startups get to product-market fit and grow their businesses through strong strategic thinking, design, and consumer science skills.
