My current role as Sr. Technical Community Manager is a departure for the last 20 years of engineering work across Security, IAM, Automation & Development, and Infrastructure design and implementation. With my diverse technical background, I'm hoping to empower our community to be their most excellent by advocating on their behalf, as well as working with them to solve difficult problems and produce valuable and interesting content.

Official Title:

Sr. Technical Community Manager

What You REALLY Do:

Automate response and chew bubble gum... and I'm all out of gum!


I love spending time with my family. Outside of that I like studying computer science and data science, along with playing piano.
