Hello 👋

Sorry, looks like I have been booked!

    Experienced technical leader with extensive experience managing a globally-distributed team of product managers, architects, engineers, and operations engineers, designing, developing, deploying and supporting new products and services that are delivered on a cloud-based service platform and on a range of client platforms. Having worked in a number of small Silicon Valley companies, I am skilled at adapting to whatever role is needed (CTO, Chief Architect, VP Prod Dev, VP Operations, CIO, Developer). I am an eloquent speaker, able to take complex technical ideas and present them to business partners and customers in human terms.
