MY JOURNEY IN PRODUCT

Hi there! 

 

My name is Adil Haris and I'm a Product Manager. If this were a normal portfolio page, I'd want to give you a grand introduction about myself with some mind blowing facts about how I made the world spin the other way round. But this is not a normal page. This is a page where I tell my story; to both you and myself.

 

My objective in maintaining this is three:

  

  1. Have a space where I can reflect on what I have done as a PM and how I have created impact.

  2. Have a place where people can get to know my professional career as quickly and easily as possible.

  3. Win you over as an employer or as a client.

 

Hope you enjoy the sober grays, the surprising whites and the bright greens. Cheers!
