Book me for Mentorship

Hi! I am a seasoned entrepreneur (6+ years) and manager (10+ years) with experience in both the tech and biotech industries. I am the Co-Founder and CTO of Phase Genomics, where we use machine learning to analyze genetic data to better understand cancer, infectious disease, and more, and previously was a Program (aka Product) Manager and PM Lead at Microsoft working on Office. I have dealt with a wide variety of management issues over the years, including hiring, fostering team culture, designing organizations, forming and driving strategy, (unfortunately) firing/managing people out, and lots more. I've been a successful IC, first-level manager of a small team, and a manager-of-managers. A few qualities I stress in any organization: (1) encouraging good local decision making, (2) delegating responsibilities not tasks, and (3) unleashing smart people on hard problems. My background is in CS, with biotech, business, management, and startup learning on the job. I'm on PlatoHQ because I have benefitted tremendously from the mentors who've helped me over the years, and I am excited for the opportunity to pay it forward to the next generation of leaders.
