As an individual that develops, coaches, dances, and more. I love helping amazing groups of all sizes around the globe continuously improve on accomplishing their objectives.

About Me


I'm Joachim Hill-Grannec.

Whether we're talking about welding, software development, dancing, etc. I've probably been involved in some version of it. I've architected modern global scale apps, mobile experiences and led teams on hundred million dollar projects. I bring experience with process and tools improvements, configuration and growth management.

I currently split my time between NYC, Seattle and Central America!
