Hi! 👋 I'm a software engineering manager with 13 years of experience in the industry. My background is not in tech—I was a career changer! I stumbled here through a humble mix of freelancing, trying to learn to code on my own, doing a 3-month bootcamp—and then I got strategic. Since then, I've been a front-end developer, a full-stack developer, a senior engineer, and now I manage and hire engineers. I am incredibly passionate about helping people unlock their potential, and I am personally motivated to help you get where you want to go.

I'm the right mentor for you if you want to rely on your strengths to get ahead and not be bogged down by your weaknesses. I do not believe in drudgery. I believe in polishing one's natural talents, and relying on wisdom and ingenuity instead of mere hard work.

I'm ideal for people who want to
- break into the field
- find the type of workplace that fits best
- get out of a rut, get around an issue, get through a life change
- become a leader
- interview confidently
- laugh!
- become their own best advocate
- get paid more

And I can be a lifesaver if you are
- overworked
- underpaid
- feeling stuck
- stressed
- facing imposter syndrome
- worried about your future doesn't have to be this way!

I'm new to MentorCruise but not to mentoring. I've helped dozens of people identify their strengths, get out of bad jobs and into great ones, find clever ways to blaze through the hard stuff, align their careers with their life goals—and become happy, highly-paid leaders in their field.
