I am a curious, creative, empathetic, and authentic leader with a thirst to lead teams to create robust, elegant, and functional solutions.
I’ve scaled my current organization’s Engineering team from myself and the CTO to a team of 18+ while maintaining the quality of the current shipping product. I also expanded the product line to multiple offerings while coordinating with both senior leadership and individual contributors to define and codify our engineering team’s culture, process, and interaction flow.
I tend toward action and away from perfection, selecting MVP over MVP++ while attempting to capture the easiest 80% of the work. I am highly passionate about what I do and favor directness and kindness when communicating. I believe that the people closest to the work are generally the most informed, and should be empowered to be their most effective.
