Don't DevRel alone!
I do consulting for developer relations teams and companies whose customers are developers. My goal is to create something extraordinary for my clients with every engagement.
How can I help you?
I prefer engagements based around well-scoped projects with few dependencies and a high potential for impact. Here are a few examples of projects that can fit into that category.
Open Source Projects
I can create a meaningful, contributor-friendly open source project that shows off your technology and inspires people to use it.
Creative Content Series
I can create a series of blog posts and videos that look at your technology through a creative new lens, produced in a fun and engaging way.
Experience: Wrote the Comparing Algolia and Elasticsearch for Consumer-Grade Search three part series; wrote about Algolia’s ultra-low latency on StackShare reaching 190 points on HackerNews
Online Community Bootstrapping
I can help get your online community off the ground with a combination of tools, integrations and outreach.
How I got here
Values I practice

Empathy—I listen closely to understand your situation
Adaptability—I revise my guidance quickly based on what we learn
Transparency—I tell you when I don't know something - no BS
Transformation—I want my contribution to be a game-changer for you
