About | Curriculum | Blog

Technology leader with 14+ years of professional experience working in product development organizations as software engineer, engineering manager and head of engineering. I took the managerial path after ~10 years in software engineering and architecture, and in the last years I have been building and managing cross-functional, co-located and distributed agile product development teams for start-ups/scale-ups and enterprises.

I like to contribute to the creation and organization of high performing teams based on collaboration, communication and healthy application of Agile principles. I like to be part of and collaborate in creating a work environment where all people can feel safe, listened, belonging, freely contribute and strive for everyone's success while also improving their lives and grow as individuals and professionals.
