About me

Hi, I'm Felix. I'm passionate about creating things with care, and am grateful that i can do that for a living 🙏

I grew up designing & developing back when websites had guestbooks, hit counters and animated mastheads with 🔥flaming text (we’ve come a long way. Or maybe not)

Fast-forward to today, I’ve helped build, ship and scale a variety of successful products: mobile & desktop apps in mobile payments, employee benefits, expense management, domain & email hosting services and enterprise chat.

I now lead product management teams at zeta / directi where i'm lucky to work with folks i admire. I also setup and ran zeta’s highly-regarded design team till its roots told hold.

Alongside work, my wife & I founded and built myoki, a travel startup that allows you to book the best villas in india & southeast asia. We built it from the ground-up without external funding, and are proud to say we're bootstrapped & profitable 🙌.

I also occasionally dabble in smaller experiments: 

Recall ⏰— an app i made to create super-fast reminders (it does surprising well on the android play store. )

Secondbrain 🧠—  a new skunkworks project i'm working on. Secondbrain is a way to resurface things you read, learnt or realized at various times so that the ideas stick.

Personal values

You're at your best when aligned to your values.  these are mine:

* Consume less, create more: more words, more art, more code — anything that lets you put something beautiful out into the world. Creation is the fundamental verb, after all.

* Create things people love: things that aren't just useful and usable, but fun and beautiful too. Why pick function over form when you can do both.

* Craft is important: the details matter – from the words that are used to sell to how a product seems to telepathically know what you want. This quote resonates with me.

* High resolution matters: the more you learn, the better you see; the better you see, the more interesting things are. Always be learning.

* Everything is learnable: no skill is beyond learning, practise and persistence. Believe in yourself.

* Be kind: work is important. How we treat each other, even more so.
