I’ve spent my formative engineering years with the Chrome’s foundational team, earning the Google Founders’ Award for my contributions. During the amazing growth from a handful of people to thousands of engineers, I’ve fixed, overhauled, and led key parts of the dev infrastructure; providing technical leadership for ~50 contributors.

I repeated the success with re-engineering of Google Cloud’s integration with Let’s Encrypt, and similar system improvements and design reviews at Citadel (one of the leading firms in Finance, #1 in several rankings).

My hands-on experience at scale is a feature. I’m an engineer at heart, easily building rapport with fellow engineers. I’m passionate about getting things done, for good. I’m proud the solutions I’ve created are still running, years from my departure. I’ve entered consulting to help more engineering teams experience the same - and thrive.
