Key Accomplishments

I've worked in a diversity of roles, from low-level coding in the service of scaling twitter, through product work like Retweet, to growth engineering and experimentation. This tends to be useful to companies in the relatively early stages of development. I also ran education at twitter for a long time, so I understand how to help a company scale its people.
