I'm an engineering manager, software engineer, writer, mentor, 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 write, host a podcast, send a newsletter, advise companies, and mentor/coach people to share whatever I learned.

I hike, snowboard, swim, read, play bass guitar, and travel. Once I had a garden and I'm looking forward to having it back soon!

Different groups of people demand various details when listening to your solutions. The details you’ll show to a software engineer differs from the level of detail you will show to your product manager, and it will be completely different when you want to present to a C-level.

I've realized many engineers struggle to communicate their work at different levels. Even the most experienced en­gineers have difficulty presenting their ideas or their achievements. In this episode, I talk about how to present your solutions and create the most profound impact on your audience. I share what I've learned and honed with feedback over the years.
