About

I am a seasoned engineer who has held several senior manager/director positions in startups (from series B to pre-IPO). I built my first startup in 2022 and raised pre-seed round. Over the past 15 years, I've mentored over 50 engineers, both within my workplaces and externally through various mentorship platforms.

My ideal mentees are those who are ambitious, driven, and passionate about their work. I aim to guide them through the challenges of leadership and help them improve their skills. For example, I have helped one of my mentees transition from a senior engineer to a team lead within 6 months. I achieve this by providing personalized guidance, support, and resources.

If you are interested in working with me, please send me a message. Let's work together to achieve your goals!
