I have spent the last two decades writing software as well as building and leading large distributed software engineering teams. Currently, as VP of Engineering at Doximity, I lead a large distributed engineering organization and write code in my spare time. I am passionate about providing the business with a pragmatic technology foundation to deliver incremental value and helping teams grow and remain effective.

Sorry, I am not currently available for mentoring sessions.
