About

Hey there! My name is David, and I'm a Canadian currently living in New York City. I have almost two decades of experience working in the tech industry. In the last decade, I took on leadership roles to help people grow and succeed in their careers.

I am a director of engineering with a ton of experience mentoring engineering leaders and engineers. I like to think of myself as an investor; I love investing my time in people. I enjoy discussing struggles, coaching, and checking in with engineers and engineering managers to achieve their goals in my day-to-day job. I speak fluently both French and English.

I look forward to jumping on a call with you and getting to know you better.

I reached out to David to explore how I'm thinking about development & personal growth. He was wonderful, thoughtful, incredibly inquisitive, and overall extremely helpful. He takes a very socratic approach, asking just the right questions to better unpack & understand how you're thinking. I highly recommend him as a mentor.

So far, David has checked every box I looked for in a mentor. He keeps our conversations engaging and offers insights from a different point of view, often highlighting things I wouldn't have thought of. He doesn't sugarcoat anything, which I appreciate. In the four months I've spent with him, I've seen a drastic improvement in my personal and professional development, especially in my confidence and communication skills. Thanks to him, I can now handle more challenging tasks in a managerial role that I wasn't prepared for before.
