I am happiest when I get to paint a vision and guide things forward through others. At my best when I get to do long-term and strategic work, using my long technical background as a guiding star while being humble towards all that’s changes since my days as a programmer.
As a manager, I strive to bring out the best in every individual. Seeing the potential that most of us fail to identify in ourselves. I am comfortable managing both managers, leads and ICs and love when I get to grow both technical and people skills in my people.
A common denominator in any role has been acting as the glue between business and tech, working truly cross-functional with aligning technical visions with clear business goals. I love working in close collaboration with my counterpart to calibrate risk, effort and cost to create magic.
I am a fast learner, empathic and have an ability to see context and how things fit together. Constant learning is at my core. I strive to challenge assumptions and the way things are done - both for myself and for others. That is what helps us grow.
I am a public speaker, workshop facilitator and blogger as well as the creator/author of "Would heu- risk it?", a book and a card deck on Risk Management and Testing.
