Work History


Engineering Manager (2018-2020), Staff Mobile Engineer (2020-Present)

As a manager, I supported the iOS and Android teams by coaching, mentoring, improving processes, and getting my hands dirty in code. In 2020, I decided to switch to a Staff Engineer role. Now I’m on the Mobile Foundations team and I’m responsible for many aspects of mobile architecture at Asana, helping engineers on four teams work as effectively as possible.

In addition to my work with the iOS and Android teams, I’ve also helped the engineering intern program run smoothly, edited most Asana Engineering blog posts, and facilitated the release of open source software. I also helped design and build a complex web-based text editor that’s also used in the mobile apps.


iOS Engineer (2015), Mobile Team Lead (2016), Engineering Manager (2017-2018)

I helped move Hipmunk’s iOS codebase from startup spaghetti to MVVM while keeping a fast pace shipping features. I rewrote the mobile web flight search UI on a tight deadline to support acquisition by Concur, and integrated it seamlessly into the mobile apps to replace the native flight search UIs, while maintaining great UX. As a manager, I owned the mobile recruiting pipeline and hired 3 solid engineers.
