Wandering thoughts from the Pacific Northwest

Hi 👋

🏡 My name is Rian and I live in Portland, OR with my wife and two daughters. I am a product manager at Wildbit, where I work on Postmark.

👨‍💻 I write a blog called Elezea where I share articles and resources for software product managers.

📬 Elezea is also a weekly newsletter to help you create better products, and understand the broader impact of technology on our work and our lives.

📖 I wrote a book about product management called Making It Right. You can read an excerpt on Medium and buy the book on Amazon.

✍️ I use this site to write about things that aren’t related to my work. Expect infrequent personal essays and unfinished thoughts. There’s an RSS feed if you’d like to follow along.

☕️ Let’s connect further on Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram.

👌 You look nice today.
