About me

I've spent the last 10 years supporting engineers and engineering leaders and building high-performing, co-located and distributed engineering teams.

In my career, I’ve worked with a broad variety of companies at different stages, where I’ve hired, developed, and supported engineers, technical leaders and engineering leaders (both new and experienced engineering managers). In my previous role, I served as a Director of Engineering at SoundCloud.

After years of serving as an engineering leader in various organisations, I am embarking on a new journey with a mission to give back to the community and empower others. Through my writing and coaching, I am aiming to share my expertise and insights, helping individuals reach their full potential and make a positive impact.

Your journey is entirely your own, with unique paths and challenges. Whether you're new to management, a seasoned leader with specific challenges, or simply aspiring to advance your career, working 1:1 with a coach accelerates your success as a leader and provides essential support as you transition from an individual contributor to a manager and a multiplier.

It is like having an 1:1 with a manager who cares deeply about, and invested in, you and your own growth. Collaboratively, we will craft a tailored strategy. You may already know some areas where you’d like to improve, and my role is to assist you in giving feedback and advice by sharing my perspective on what i’ve seen work / not work, if I have familiarity with the topic, and most importantly, guide your in introspection to unlock the answers that already reside within you.

Interested in coaching for yourself or somebody in your team? Get in touch and tell me more about what you are looking for - what coaching support you are looking for and a bit about yourself.

Ethics Statement

In my commitment to giving back and empowering others on their journey, I pledge to uphold the highest ethical standards. My goal is to share my expertise and insights with integrity, ensuring that the knowledge and guidance I provide contribute to the greater good and the positive impact we aim to create.

I avoid conflicts of interest as best I can, and always disclose if I have one.

I am dedicated to fostering a culture of respect, inclusivity, and ethical conduct, recognising the importance of trust and responsibility in achieving our shared goals.
