I am a startup CTO and have created a career from continually bringing products and services from inception to market - both at small companies and big companies. I co-founded a startup during college and it was acquired by eBay. I led moonshot programs at eBay's startup incubator. Then, I joined Amazon to adapt Amazon Go technology into Whole Foods Market across the United States. I also worked as a Solutions Architect within Amazon Web Services focusing on helping startups leverage their suite of machine learning services. I am bringing all those learnings back to my startups and wishing to share them with others along the way.

I have excelled at many roles from engineer, to technical program manager, to solutions architect, to engineering manager and CTO. I enjoy conversations about career possibilities and career growth.

My motto is "If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together."

I did a intro call with Ian, it was a great call and helped shaped how working with him would look like, how he operates and helps you dig within rather than tell you what to do. Very interesting and hence why we look for a mentor. I will be jumping on the monthly plan and look forward to working with Ian

Ian is a really great mentor, he really took time to hear my story and ask the right questions, He deeply listened to what I had to say and was very patient, I highly enjoyed speaking with Ian, if you are thinking of booking a session, This was definitely worth every minute to me.
