Hi all, I'm the CTO & Co-founder at Onclusive (formerly AirPR) - we are a data science platform for the marketing & communications industry. We help content marketing & communication professionals understand how their stories drive real business outcomes. Over the course of building the company, I've had to scale a distributed engineering team from 1(myself) to 20+. Prior to this role, I held software engineering roles at Zynga and DreamWorks Animation. I've learned many lessons throughout my journey from being an IC to founding a company to now managing engineering teams across different stacks serving different products. I look forward to sharing them with the community. At the same time, I believe in constant learning and would welcome any opportunity to exchange ideas and learn from this amazing group! In my leisure time, I enjoy playing tennis and traveling around the world. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me if I can help in any way!
Hey, I'm available every Thursday at 3:30 PM (GMT)
