Making Smaller Circles explores the strategies and techniques for creating great software products.

I have enjoyed building software for the past 15 years. Previously, I have worked at LinkedIn, Blackberry and various startups.

In 2014, I led the Engineering team at Careerify, a Toronto based startup, which we sold to LinkedIn. Since then, I have spent a few years building large scale AI products at LinkedIn in the Bay Area.

Over the years I have come to appreciate that building great software products require a combination of interdisciplinary skills ranging from technology and liberal arts. Some of the companies I admire such as Pixar, Apple and Basecamp are great examples of this.

If you enjoy in depth articles on creativity, product development and software engineering, this site is for you.

Thank you for reading!
