I’m a software executive who specializes in year-over-year product engineering acceleration. I coach engineering leaders and love mid- to late-stage startups that need to develop their second and third major products.

My approach to building high-performance engineering teams is applying systemic technical insight through kind, sharply-focused leadership.

I wrote my first book – Executive Engineering – to encapsulate what I learned in the first quarter-century of building software startups. It’s for anyone who leads the engineering function and needs to do more with less on a tight timeline.

You can hire me to speak to your team or provide support for your existing engineering leadership.
