I am Software Engineer turned Architect turned leader. I love coaching and mentoring engineers and leaders on a wide variety of topics including leadership, communication, change management, and organizational design. I love talking about recruiting, hiring and onboarding, having spent the last year doubling my organization and hiring over 100 engineers. I have enjoyed creating a learning organization. I believe in focusing on what you control, and that we're always competing with ourself yesterday.
