I learn the needs of the business, and focus the team on delivering in a sustainable manner. At the same time, I help the team members grow, develop our culture, and build valuable tech.
When talking to others, I prefer a couch to a table, and when I need a break you might see me juggling, practicing magic, or riding my folding bike - often in the office.
I’m interested in a wide variety of roles, but a team figuring out how to make users happier in support of a business need gets a tonne of points in my job evaluation criteria.

Product/Market Risk vs Technical Risk: Product/Market Risk Fit.
Incubations need to prove a risk can be over come, either product/market or techincal. Product/market risk is about do customers actually want your product, and technical is about can the techincal feasiblity be over come.
I’m most interested in closing product/market fit, even though my many years as a technogist makes me well versed in resolving technical risk.
