I run executive searches for technology companies. My experience covers all functions, the majority being product and engineering. I joined SPMB in 2008 and have since contributed to the success of hundreds of searches. With over a decade of experience working with innovative companies across growth stages and verticals, I’ve gained an in-depth understanding of the tech landscape, which in turn, allows me to intelligently assess clients’ needs, critically evaluate candidates, and efficiently cycle projects.
I received a degree in Business Economics from University of California Santa Barbara.
