Hey! I'm Daniel.

Most days I spend my time exploring new software projects and writing. On the side I'm building Shortwave and Housecraft with some wonderful people.


Want me to help you make more money? I can help with conversion, strategy, pricing, growth, product design, copywriting, and more for your SaaS and other software products. 📬 Shoot a note to daniel.zarick@gmail.com.


In the past, I've done work for ngrok, OneShot, Jewelbots, RunKit, SilviaTerra, and others. Earlier in life I worked for Twilio as a product manager and Coudal Partners on Field Notes notebooks.

Otherwise, I have a long list of failures. My personal failed products are Mocky 😭 (a magic window into your team's Dropbox), Driftless 😢 (your friends' best Amazon purchases), The Shakedown 😞 (shake your phone, get points, be happy), Hermes 😩 (helping designers & developers find jobs in Chicago), and Colorplane 😑 (a color picker for humans).
