Hello 👋
My next available slot is

  • Thursday 9th Dec6:00 PM (GMT)

Hey everyone, excited to be here! Right now, I'm Head of Engineering at ClassPass, but before that I was VP of Engineering for a hardware startup and got my start leading teams at Palantir a decade ago. I joined ClassPass in part to help build an engineering office in Montana (30+ engineers over the last year). I'm looking forward to learning from others and sharing my experiences!
