I have stewarded systems transacting billions of dollars and serving tens of millions of users. With over 10 years experience in DevOps and delivering highly scalable web applications, I thrive at the nexus of infrastructure and application development.
I have had the opportunity to speak at a variety of national conferences including ChefConf, Hashiconf, and GitLab Commit on numerous topics such as: Serverless, Infrastructure as Code, Security and Compliance. I love opportunities to enhance my public speaking skills as well as contribute to conversations at the local and national levels.
I have worked fulltime remote since 2013. I consider myself an expert and evangelist in working remotely and building highly collaborative and highly productive remote teams.
In my current role as Engineering Manager at GitLab, I lead teams working on hard problems in the areas of Kubernetes, Serverless, and Infrastructure as Code. I feel very fortunate to work with such a smart, empathetic, and experienced group of people.
I enjoy having fun outdoors with family and on my own. When not working, I can be found climbing, skiing, ice skating, MTB, and trail running.
Thanks for dropping by!
