Chat with me for 30 minutes about distributed team management

Have you been trying to figure out this new world order with regard to work-from-home (WFH), remote work, distributed teams, and the like? I’ve opened up my calendar for 30-minute chats. You can schedule them with me here: after over a year, I’ve now shut down this link on May 27, 2021

If you want to read up on distributed teams, here are some past posts from my blog and the blog on the subject. Open up these links and skim to get a sense of my past writings.

I think you’ll find that some of the best advice on distributed teams come from people who have been doing it for years — rather than from folks that are scrambling to do it, under less-than-ideal circumstances, in the last few weeks. Again, if you need help, you can find me on my calendar here.

It’s more important than ever that you lead and inspire your teams in an effective way. Remember: not only are they operating on a fully remote model — possibly for the first time in their lives — but, also, there is a wider economic calamity around them. They are looking toward work for a sense of normalcy and purpose.

If you can give that normalcy and purpose to them, you can do them a great service. I am glad to help in any way I can to think through the leadership challenges in a distributed setting.

Stay safe out there!

Why might I have a good background to chat with you about distributed teams? I’ve been doing it for over ten years. I currently lead the engineering, product, and design team at, which is one of the earliest practitioners of the “fully distributed” model among modern software & SaaS companies. It scaled up to millions in revenue and a staff of 50+ amazing contributors.’s fully distributed team spans across sales, marketing, support, product, engineering, and design. In February 2021, was acquired by Automattic, and became part of its enterprise/SaaS division, WPVIP. is therefore now part of one of the largest fully distributed teams in the world. Even prior to my time at, I worked on distributed teams in the open source community and in Fortune 500 firms. Feel free to get in touch.
