Welcome to Boiledbeanstudio

I am Jayashree (Jay) – Writer, Tech Mentor/Coach & creative in Berlin.

What I offer

A bit more about me

My educational background is in software engineering. I have nearly 15 years of corporate work experience in Technology companies. I also have years of rich creative work experience in writing, editing & food photography. I have worked and lived in diverse global settings. I draw my insights from both tech and creative worlds to help people identify and manage their workplace/personal challenges and grow into their own best versions. I believe in the power of continuous learning at any age and in any circumstance.

I am a strong Tech writer, with excellent research capabilities, especially on current and relevant tech topics like Data Engineering. I have ghostwritten (Co-wrote) in-depth articles for Data forward companies. The most recent ones are Headless BI 101 and Modern Data Stack 101.

Working with mid-level, new or transitioning leaders in Tech, and coaching them to find and strengthen their empathetic communication skills is of special interest to me. I strive to work with professionals in a judgment-free manner to help identify and correct inconsistencies in self-expression(spoken as well as written) in the workplace and online profiles.

Besides Tech, I am an avid food photographer and creative, and I love helping other photographers and small ethical businesses via images, visuals, and workshops. I also write on these topics on Medium as well as on this website.

I am also deeply interested in studying, discovering, and using cultural conditioning to my advantage. I believe there are many common grounds across cultures that can be harnessed to help us work smoothly and effectively with people of diverse backgrounds and dispositions.
