Hello 👋

Unfortunately, I don't have any available slot for the next 4 weeks

    Hello! I’m based in San Francisco and have been leading engineering teams for about 15 years now. I’m currently the VP of Engineering for PagerDuty, where I lead product delivery. Prior to that, I was VP of Engineering for Shared Services/Infrastructure for Zendesk. I’ve been here for about 6 years. Before Zendesk, I was VP of Engineering at a small startup called PowerReviews, which I helped start with 3 others.
