Profile

I write code to make the worlds services run faster, cheaper, and more widely available. Happily employed Software Engineer at Five9.

Skills

As a Computer Science major at Colorado State University, I became involved with an engineering research team. I helped run and maintain the on-prem Kubernetes cluster of ~100 nodes; from hardware upgrades to bootstraping clusters with kubeadm. After pinching my thumb on a server rack, I decided to retire from the ground work and become a cloud engineer.
