Hello 👋
My next available slot is

  • Wednesday 1st Jun9:00 PM (GMT)

I'm an engineering leader at a health tech company. I began my career as a web developer and later moved to enterprise software and SAAS, and I have spent about half of my career as a frontend developer and the rest on the backend, although the meanings of those words have changed a lot during that time. As someone who never intended to become a manager, it’s taken a lot of work on myself and trust in my own management to get me to where I am today. I try to be the kind of manager I have had the most success with as an individual contributor - I trust my direct reports to be accountable for their work and do my best to clear a path for them.
