About Me:

I am an experienced principal engineer focused on large scale production systems engineering with significant experience in all aspects of the production stack and a deep understanding of the underlying technologies modern systems are built upon. I have a solid foundation of technical expertise and leadership, including as a founding engineer at a first statewide ISP; systems engineering with web search at Yahoo; delivering large volumes of image data and user driven content at Flickr; and founding the Edge Performance discipline and building out a worldwide network at Box.

My career is distinguished by a sense of technical ownership and an ability to build effective relationships with product partners. I specialize in building large scale / high throughput architectures with metrics and analytics as a cornerstone to understanding and improving the customer experience.

Building a successful product and infrastructure requires a team where all members can contribute and feel ownership. Over my career I have created environments for growth and success for my teams with mentorship and technical leadership.
