I love what I do.
So should you.
I was always ambitious but I never quite found where
I fit in the tech world. Then I found Product Management.
I discovered the work that energizes me. Now I love empowering people to grow and thrive as Product Managers.
Engineer to what?
At the age of 13, back in Ireland, I built my first website for Rainbow Car Wash. It was the moment that set the trajectory for my entire career. I found my passion. I went on to spend several years as a Frontend Engineer, and then slowly, I started to move into more leadership and team lead roles. Like so many people, I fell into Product Management. I just started to do the work of a Product Manager without knowing anything about the discipline. I remember telling my wife that I didn’t know what I would do if I left my job at the time. I wasn’t an Engineer, a Designer or a Business Analyst. I didn’t know what I was.
Product Manager to Coach
Everything changed during a single conversation. Someone asked me “So you’re a Product Manager?” I actually hadn’t heard the term before so I did some research. My first read was A Product Manager’s Job by Josh Elman. It described in great detail what my role was. From there, I read Inspired by Marty Cagan and fell in love with the craft of Product Management.
Several years later I took a role as Group Product Manager at 15Five. I had managed Engineers, Designers, and PMs before, but this was the first time coaching an entire team of PMs. Coaching Product Managers and helping them grow in their careers energized me like no work I had ever done before. It became my passion.

When I talk about career coaching I’m not talking about resume building, interview prep or job-seeking tips (although I have lots to share about this too).
I’m talking about building a clear vision and strategy to help you thrive and advance in your career.
