We have decided to move beyond this chapter of Stick so that we can embark on our next one.

Our mission has always been to help you tell better visual stories through presentations.

Today, I’m proud to share that I will be able to accelerate progress in achieving this vision by joining the team at Google.

I am so proud of what we have built together over the past five years, and I look forward to this next chapter as part of G Suite’s product team as PM Lead for Google Slides.

Thank you!

This incredible journey has been the result of work from hundreds of people without whom we could have never gotten here. To say I am grateful is an understatement.

Stay in touch.

While Stick’s mailing list and newsletter won’t continue in its current form, we’re still fighting to bring our vision to life, which means we want to hear from you! If you have any feedback or ideas for presentations in general, or Google Slides specifically, please reach out. Our work together is only beginning.
