LinkedIn profile

Hi all — I'm the Head of Engineering, Seller & B2B at Opendoor! Before that, I was an Engineering Manager at Lyft. I managed several teams across three locations surfacing public transit into the Lyft app. Previously I was a Director of Engineering at Capital One and spent most of my career at Blackboard, an edtech company, starting as a software engineer and then moving into eng management, managing managers, and technical program management. I have an economics degree but fell into software engineering and have been managing teams for 15 years. I love the coaching part of my job and hope I can be helpful as a sounding board here!
