My name is Frank Caron, and I am a product guy and seasoned writer with a love of both software and writing.
I like to describe myself as a scribe, curator, organizer, and collaborator. Those are all just really euphemisms to dress up my OCD, which manifests as a compulsive need to write stuff down.
Currently, I live and work in Toronto. I've previously lived and worked in Waterloo and San Francisco. I'm leading up the product team at a wicked cool start-up. Expect more superlatives to follow here.
I'm married to the wonderful Allison Buchan-Terrell, who loves me a lot but clearly not enough to take my name. "SEO" my ass.
I come from a background in app and web development. This experience has been complemented over the years with a passion for information architecture, paritcularly in the areas of user interface and product copy.
Frank is very skilled with a strong technical background, but he is also extremely articulate and has a very sharp eye for design and interface.Sean Lynch, Dropbox
More recently, I spent the last half decade working as a technical product manager. I've managed upwards of $50MM in product, and I've shipped a lot of shit across a lot of different customers. Most of the battles were hard-fought; none were sexy.
Frank is a superstar product manager, writer and hacker. It's truly rare to find someone with a blend of technical knowhow, deep passion for collaboration, and award-worthy writing and communication skills. He's never afraid to speak his mind, challenge status quo and push to get the right thing done for all of our stakeholders.Mladen Rangelov, Flipp
Contrasting these technical skills is my formal education and a wealth of experience as a professional writer. From technical doc to editorial feature writing, product requirements to product reviews, I am a proud to be a flexible and versatile writer, with a half-decent business acumen to boot.
Frank is a conscientious, detail-oriented and hard worker. He writes with personality and flair.Eric Bangeman, Ars Technica
Rounding out my experience is a smattering of marketing and comms, which has helped me understand how products can be successfully taken to market.
All told, I love software products, and if I believe in yours, I'm all in: days, nights, and weekends.
He has a passion for his craft, and his focus and dedication keeps him on the top of his game.Joseph Ganetakos, Ubisoft
