About me
I've been working as an Engineering Manager and Project Manager in the IT industry for the last 14+ years, serving areas with a focus on an array of different segments: DevOps, Cloud (SaaS, PaaS), Backend, Mobile, Data Engineering, and Sustaining Engineering.
I've had the opportunity to both drive and contribute to numerous projects, having a significant impact on the organizations I supported, flawlessly moving across complex DevOps experiences to high-scale Cloud services, taking pride in those ventures that succeeded, and taking away the hard lessons from those that didn't.
I've been solving scalability, availability, performance, and organizational puzzles along the way, wearing different hats from Project Manager to People Leader, creating both product and engineering roadmaps, often at the same time. I've been supporting teams in managing projects, programs, and backlogs while helping my teams on their path to personal and professional growth, empowering them to reach their full potential and achieve their goals while building cultures and growing healthy, focused teams with a strong sense of ownership.
