I've been working in San Francisco and Silicon Valley for the last 20 years. I was Head of Product at 3 startups, ranging from 3-guys-in-a-garage to a Series D startup. I have always done a mix of hands-on PM work and managing other product managers. Before that, I started my career as a software engineer at Google, where I transitioned to product management.

I am currently on sabbatical, spending more time with my family (I'm a new dad) and deciding what's next. I have always enjoyed coaching my teammates (not just my direct reports but also indirect reports and peers), and now I'm enthusiastic about helping out others here.

If you need some questions answered right away, but aren't ready to commit to a full mentorship, please see my "One-Off Sessions" and book an Introductory Call.

Specific topics I especially enjoy talking about:
- Identifying how a PM can best contribute to their particular team, by matching strengths and weaknesses to find complements
- Adding just enough process to prevent chaos without hurting agility
- Resolving personality conflicts
- Changing career from engineering to product management
- Forging relationships with cross-functional stakeholders, especially Marketing, Sales, Customer Success
- Managing your stock options (disclaimer: I am not a financial advisor)
