Engineering Leader, Cat Herder, and Wearer of Many Hats in San Francisco Bay Area
I make people laugh (at least most of the time), and I'm often told that I have a contagious smile! ;)
Of my various talents, I'm also a full-time professional cat herder, frequently a master project juggler, and sometimes a wearer of many hats.
In my 25+ years of experience, it seems like I've seen it all. I've worked for the government, corporations, and many, startups. I've been a part of three failed startups, two acquisitions, one merger, one IPO, and one spin-out!
I've had many roles in my career: Systems Administrator, Back-end Developer, Engineering/QA/DevOps/Release Manager, and Tech Leader. I've overseen remote teams distributed across up to 6 different time zones. These different roles have allowed me to acquire and hone the necessary skills to help multi-disciplinary teams successfully develop and deliver great products.
I have a passion for creating, building, and mentoring great teams that are able to continuously deploy scalable, high-performant cloud applications - taking into account best practices from design to development to infrastructure.
