I'm a software engineer with almost a decade of experience wearing several different hats and working at nearly all levels of the stack. Throughout my career, I've worked as a Software Engineer, Data Scientist, Engineering Manager, and even a Computational Journalist.
I'm currently a Software Engineer II at Amazon where I work on building a scalable, state-of-the-art information retrieval system that powers Alexa.
As of late, I'm infatuated with Rust as a language for its ability to quickly and easily build high performance, low latency, memory safe systems with an excellent type system.
Having been a data scientist, I have a strong background in the PyData stack working with python, jupyter, pandas, matplotlib, numpy, and scikit-learn for many years.
I have background a in DevOps fully embracing IaaC, having built deployment orchestration systems from the ground up several times throughout my career.
As a technologist, my latest interests include working with:
- low latency systems
- distributed systems
- performance optimization
- application security
- and open source
