Key Accomplishments

1) I’ve held executive positions at small and mid-sized companies, built several successful engineering teams from scratch, and led three engineering teams through acquisitions.

2) I've also taken the helm of two engineering organizations just in time to avoid terminal corporate events, which was incredibly satisfying.

3) I've contributed to the success that helped 2 companies go public and several companies get acquired.

As an Advisor

I do my best to always provide multiple options with unbiased pros and cons. The choice is always yours, since you'll ultimately have to live with it, but I want to make sure you understand the trade-offs and potential risk involved when making important decisions.

We worked together  •  "Software development is art. It is science. It is craft, archeology, fire fighting, sociology, and a host of other activities."
I worked with Peter 4 years ago and found in him the technical mentor and advisor i was missing. Not only is he a skilled and passionate tec ... hnologist himself, but he is also one of the few people that i have worked with who takes an interest in other people's development, listens to their crazy ideas, and helps them make sense of it all by lending his experience and clear thinking to the process. I have kept in touch with Peter over the years and have witnessed many other high profile organizations benefit from his technical leadership and engaging management style. I have no doubt that he will be an asset to any organization as an advisor, leader, or hands-on technologist.

We worked together  •  "Software development is art. It is science. It is craft, archeology, fire fighting, sociology, and a host of other activities."
When I last worked with Junaid (4 yrs ago), he was constantly looking for opportunities to further his personal growth and career. He was an ... ything but complacent with respect to his career growth and wasn't, justifiably, willing to leave his professional development up to our then current employer. Since then, I've maintained contact with him on a personal level, enjoying his journey from a different perspective. I've watched him proactively take risks, learn from his mistakes, and grow as a person and technologist. In both cases, I've always found Junaid to be thoughtful, hungry for challenging new ground-floor opportunities, willing to take intelligent risks, and an absolute pleasure to be around - definitely the kind of person I'd want to be in the trenches with during the early more stressful years of getting a startup off the ground!
