LinkedIn profile

Hello 👋

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

    I support and mentor managers and technical leaders, both on the technical and business side of their job. I've been a developer, a team leader, a manager and now a manager of managers. Throughout my career I've worked on all kind of challenges, from cloud services to UI design. I would say that my biggest accomplishment is the number of leaders and autonomous teams I've helped grow, no matter the product field. I'm always following some core principles and I invite others in the same direction: - consider it done attitude; - braintrust your ideas until you get to the best solution; - it's all about consistency; - competition will never outwork me;
