Engineering is always about people 🌍

Great product teams are on a quest to understand and satisfy customer needs as best they can. My job is to build those teams and equip them to do just that, engaging personally with folks from every discipline to build trust and purpose.

Empathetic process design is my jam πŸ“

I love developing people-systems that just work. That's why I'm in my element building career progression frameworks, hiring strategies, and team processes. It may also be why I design board games in my spare time!

Let's build inclusive teams 🌈

I believe that diverse, inclusive teams build better products. Regardless, it's our duty to make our workplaces more diverse and inclusiveβ€” so I want to work with people who are fully prepared to make that effort.
