About Me


"Kareem is in a much better position than many transitioning vets. Masters      PMP Cert     Plan to gain practical product management experience underway and already executing his plan. We discussed some tools for transitioning and I shared some resources, but he has a solid approach. Where mentors can help is with exposure to Product Management and connections for informational interviews. Looking forward to seeing Kareem do well as I know he will." circa 2021

"I partnered with Kareem as Product Managers for a fully operational app at Kessel Run. Even though it was his second time working in a full-time Product Manager capacity, Kareem was able to quickly pick up on all things Product Management and Agile. Kareem took ownership of assignments and was proactive in following up. In addition, his experience in the Air Force strengthened his ability to collaborate with a wide range of colleagues. I highly recommend Kareem as a Product Manager in the private or public sectors." circa 2023
