I do consultation and advisory calls for software engineers and software engineering leaders.

It's much simpler than it sounds. I do both paid and pro-bono sessions, depending on my availability and your circumstances. Most people that reach out are usually looking for:

  1. Support through a goal or challenge. Sometimes people reach out for help on a specific subject (e.g. “I want to do better at interviews” or “I am managing a report with performance issues”). You tell me what you need, and I give you pointers on each call for progress beyond our engagement.
  2. An unbiased sounding board. For example, a mentoring or advisory relationship. These work more like a regular 1:1 with me. The value of the sessions compound over time as I learn more about you.

My availability varies a lot, so the best way to start is reaching out on [email protected] introducing yourself and sharing what you are looking for. I look forward to speaking with you.


Here's what some of the people who have worked with me have to say about their experience:
