Hello! I'm Engineering Manager at sanity.io which is a headless CMS with primarily developer users, previously at codec.ai, an AI/big data marketing startup, and American Express. My background is physics and computer science but now I'm learning general product strategy and management practices, which I've been working on for about 5 years now. I still code when I can. Outside of work I like to enjoy the Norwegian countryside, play computer games and travel.

Sorry, I am not currently available for mentoring sessions.
