I'm not updating my Polywork profile anymore. Everything I do is available on my blog.

I'm an engineering manager, software engineer, writer, and podcaster. I work towards creating great and high-performing systems and teams whose members work in sync, have good communication, share common principles, and are aligned on the same goal.

I kayak, hike, snowboard, read, play bass guitar, and sometimes travel.
