Howdy! As a mentor, my job is to see the talent and ability within you, more than you see in yourself, and help bring it out of you. I'm your brain to pick, an ear to listen, and a hand to push in the right direction. Mentoring is my passion, and I have had the privilege to mentor over 20 successful people in my career. I'm a seasoned technology executive with over 20 years of experience in Engineering Leadership and Software Architecture, including Fortune 100 and Startup organizations in Enterprise/SMB and SaaS/IaaS markets. I've led organizations of 100+ engineers which entailed managing up-to 6 product lines and 15M in R&D budget. I'm adept at bootstrapping new products and feature-rich evolution of mature products. I deeply value creating excellence by facilitating a culture of empowerment, data-driven, craftsmanship, customer empathy, and innovation.

Hey, I'm available every Thursday at 4:30 PM (GMT)
