A passionate leader with a proven track record of building large-scale global products and engineering teams.

With experience across front-end, full-stack, backend and mobile technologies, I am deeply committed to delivering products focused on compelling user experiences by fostering an engaging culture in which high-performing teams thrive.

My core attributes include:

Technical Acumen

I take a measured approach in actively participating in technical discussions and decisions to ensure teams have a strong technical foundation. My goal is to establish a point-of-view in which we can build and scale our capabilities to successfully drive business value, while planning for future roadmaps.

Fostering Talent

Through a collaborative approach built on trust, shared vision, and open communication, I work hard to help people drive growth and progress in their professional journeys. Knowing why we are doing something and having the confidence and assurance to take action are key in achieving individual and organizational success.

Delivering Results

Driving smooth execution of complex deliverables is a common challenge across any organization. My approach leverages agile principles and iterative delivery to ensure teams are setup for success while continually seeking improvement driving better autonomy and results that are metrics driven and help us shape how we move forward.

Engaging Culture

I establish a productive and engaging culture through a foundation of trust and openness, fostering different points-of-view and experimentation, and through recognition across roles and organizations. My goal is for people to recognize the important value they have as individuals and as contributors towards our success.
