• Your company has grown and the processes you’ve built organically don’t work like they used to

  • You've heard other companies can release daily with ease, but you're working hard to release once a quarter

  • You're acquiring companies, but integrating engineering feels much harder than HR

  • Your site is having stability issues regularly, but you can't seem to make it better

I'd love to hear about your software delivery experience and can often make suggestions that pay quick rewards. Let's talk!


I have successfully led and coached DevOps transformations and operational maturity achievement at companies like Salesforce, Barracuda Networks, Cable & Wireless, MeridianLink, and SolarWinds.

Despite being a Silicon Valley veteran, I'm not content to work only with unicorns, and have tackled some of the major cultural and structural impediments to Dev and Ops collaboration. I have successfully helped transform organizations to new models of service delivery, resulting in cost reductions, resiliency, efficiency, and much better ability to compete in the market.

Between those and my best-selling video course, Mastering DevOps, I have improved the lives of thousands of IT professionals around the world.

Advisory Retainer

You want to help your engineering managers succeed but as an engineering leader, sometimes even you don't understand what your SRE managers are saying or simply don't have the time. Getting to know your company helps me help you and your leaders. Having led, coached, or managed SRE teams and organizations globally since 1999 allows serving as a resource to level up your leaders in their roles. Also available with a technical component. Limited availability.


Custom consulting engagements to help you and your organization take advantage of the DevOps movement to achieve service delivery excellence by shipping more often and more confidently across the board. Including but not limited to: value streams, Agile, distributed teams, monitoring, incident response, retrospectives, project implementation.

LSPE Meetup Talk

I'm available for speaking at your organization or conference! In addition to the topics above I've given custom private talks about how SRE fits in with the engineering organization, metrics driven development, managing work in progress, migration to cloud, and more. Internal DevOpsDays are a specialty including participating in Open Spaces and meeting with primary stakeholders.
We'll sit down and have a conversation about the most appropriate topics to maximize the impact and value.
Some more examples.
