Hello 👋
My next available slot is

  • Wednesday 29th Dec9:30 PM (GMT)

Good morning and happy Monday! Everything in my career for which I've been recognized has been as a result of someone taking the time to mentor me because they believed I could do better. (Still working on that...) I measure my influence by how often people tell me that I made a difference in their lives by showing up, so I'm excited to reach new people. Honored to be Time Magazine's Person of the Year 2006, ask me about it! :sourire: I think choosing between having fun or getting shit done is a false dichotomy. We do our most fulfilling work when we enjoy it, so raise the bar and do both. When I'm not at work getting policy written in response to my behavior (e.g. "The Taco Bell policy") I'm building 3d printers, Intermittent Fasting, backpacking through Yosemite, or following Professional Starcraft. Edit: Management exp: 10y+. Software and systems exp: 21y
