Hi there! Welcome.

I'm Patti Chan, a digital product leader with 16 years in tech, avid cook, and infinitely curious human. I advise early-stage startups, coach product folks and first-time managers, and was most recently VP of Product at Imperfect Foods. I'm holding on to my past lives as designer, software engineer, entrepreneur, teacher, and chef with all that I've got.

I write about product management and leadership from a female gaze, with a touch of Asian American perspective. I'm passionate about helping people lead more meaningful lives, in the products I build and in the words I write. You will always leave hopeful, occasionally wiser, and often hungry. I'm also a public speaker and closet introvert. I live in beautiful Oakland, California with my ex-baker husband.

If you'd like to say hello back, you can comment anywhere on this site, message me on LinkedIn, or like what I eat on Instagram.

Thank you so much for reading.

This is where I write!
