the intersection of communication and technology

I believe the biggest challenges facing tech aren’t technical, but human. My mission is to transform technology organizations by creating company cultures in which diverse, collaborative teams can thrive.

The best products are engineered on teams where the values of empathy, kindness and — most importantly — respect are held above all other contributions. 

I am the author of DevOps for Dummies and a Senior Cloud Advocate at Microsoft. I’m known for my creative approach to identifying and solving the human challenges of software engineering.

Consulting + Speaking

I advise cutting-edge startups and some of the largest companies in the world on DevOps, engineering leadership, and developer engagement. I’d love to join you for your next event.



DevOps for Dummies

DevOps is an engineering culture of collaboration, ownership and learning with the purpose of accelerating the software development lifecycle from ideation to production.

DevOps For Dummies provides a guidebook for those on the development or operations side in need of a primer on this way of working.


I’m interested in the human side of tech.
