I’m a seasoned software engineer and engineering manager with highly varied technical experience, including:
As an engineering manager and a technical lead, I emphasize coaching and mentoring, and sharing mental models to help everyone level up. I also care strongly about how companies and teams organize themselves and their work, and am deeply familiar with the common growing pains.
