Frank Caron

Hi. My name is Frank, and I love helping technical teams and team leaders use technology to build better businesses.

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, talk stuff out, and get stuff done.

Currently, I live and work in Toronto. I've previously lived and worked in Waterloo, San Francisco, and almost Berlin. I'm working in solution engineering with my amazing Ohana. Expect more superlatives to follow here.

I come from a background in app and web development. This experience has been complemented over the years with a passion for information architecture as it applies to both user and developer experience.

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.

I've spent the last decade working as a technical product manager and a product marketer. I've managed and taken to market upwards of $100MM in product, and I've shipped a lot of shit to a lot of different customers. Most of the battles were hard-fought; few 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, Shopify

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 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.

In more recent years, I've started to lead people. I love helping smarter folks than I do greater things than I ever could alone by giving them the runway and air cover they need to make magic happen. I manage with metrics, not minutiae; I am accountable for outcomes, not opinions.

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

And that's me.
