Writing software and creating software development teams. Mostly the people parts.


Late 2019

I'm currently working on honing my craft as an engineering manager. You can follow my adventures my subscribing to my newsletter, which is a collection of my inspirations and resources. If you're working as an engineering manager in Portland or Seattle, I'd love to get coffee sometime and chat.

Jenny and I just returned from a trip to the Nordic countries. It was our first time, and I'm feeling inspired to incorporate both the design philosophy and the often-subtle hygge concepts that we encountered. I declared the trip a micro-sabbatical, a concept I've written about here: what I got out of it and how to do it yourself.
