Hi, I co-founded PagerDuty and scaled the engineering and product teams for six years. As the CTO, my role shifted from an individual contributor to a team manager to a manager-of-managers as the company and technical team grew. I especially like helping startup founders and early employees grow into technical leaders at their companies.

Hey, I'm available every Tuesday at 5:30 PM (GMT)
