Hi Edwin—

You're looking for a creative, energetic wordsmith who cares about your users; I'm raising my hand.

Feedly has been my go-to newsreader ever since Google shuttered Reader. Your team did a great job of making the transition—which could have been nightmarish—simple and pain-free. That's the kind of team I'd like to play with.

You'll find more details about the work I've done below. As you'll see, my expertise is less laser-niche focused than it is diverse. I love to learn and that's reflected in my experience.

I'm eager to learn more about the position. Please let me know if you'd like to follow up.

Cheers and best regards—
