Worked at a range of F500 companies (like Microsoft, Gap) and multiple startups over the years (like Narvar, Practice Fusion). Lots of invaluable lessons learned along the way. Have been mentoring Engineering Managers through Everwise for the last year as well. Always looking for inspiration and techniques to improve my leadership practices and level-up my skills as well.
