James has been a spectacular resource to bounce ideas off of and dig deep on concerns that pop up around what it is to be CTO. Every meeting we have produces actionable feedback that I can apply in my role to further strengthen my organization. He is easy to talk with and an absolute professional - highly recommend you at least reach out if you're on the fence. James is very flexible and open to discussing your options in a low pressure and collaborative environment.

Howdy! I came with some fuzziness in my thoughts with hope to put some clearance speaking to a highly qualified person that had a similar experience as me in my role. James knows how to find the right questions to ask which helps to determine a problem and solve it pretty fast. Also he has a solid experience in infrastructure, security and management stuff which becomes handy for executive or chief technical roles, which is also my case. I'm glad I chose James as a mentor, highly recommended!

I came to James after starting a new job at a company, as a Senior Software Engineer role. The team I came onto was fairly new but the company was around for 20 years and I wanted guidance how to manage the complex web of relationships to help myself and this new team succeed. Throughout the months we worked together, he gave me actionable advice on how to work with my managers, teammates, and members of other teams to move projects forward - which is rare for me. I have worked with very few people that have seen the type of situations I've been as often as he has. Virtually every situation I was in, he had seen some flavor of it before and was able to share his experience and opinion. James is a great mentor and I highly recommend him to senior engineers to deliver successful products that require complex collaboration.

James is an exceptional mentor who provided me with guidance and support in crafting effective job search strategies and in developing a comprehensive plan for my job search. He also assisted me in tailoring my resume and cover letter for specific job applications. I am grateful for his valuable insights into DevOps and cloud architect roles. He is a dedicated mentor and is available when the need arises. I wholeheartedly recommend James to anyone seeking a mentor because he is not only knowledgeable and experienced but is also genuinely invested in the success of their mentees.

James was direct to the point and the mentorship was very well-contextualized, with actionable insights. We could notice that he read the notes we added before the meeting.
