I'M

eric paquin.

PRODUCT MANAGER INNOVATION CONSULTANT
WORK-IN-PROGRESS

I BELIEVE IT OFTEN TAKES BOLD MOVES TO ACHIEVE BUSINESS, AND PERSONAL, SUCCESS. BUT BEING BOLD IS NOT SUFFICIENT, YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND THE PROBLEM YOU WANT TO SOLVE, SUPPORT YOUR DECISION WITH DATA AND, YES, SOMETIMES, TRUST YOUR GUT INSTINCT.

THIS SITE WILL KEEP GROWING TO INCLUDE MY PROFESSIONAL AND PERSONAL MUSINGS. FROM TALKS TO INTERESTS, BUSINESS MODELS TO PHOTOGRAPHY.

THIS IS ME.
