I’m a software engineer based in Minneapolis.
I currently work remotely as a Senior Software Engineer at Fastly, and I’ve previously worked as a Site Reliability Engineer at MariaDB Corporation and General Mills. I graduated from Iowa State in 2013 with a B.S. in Computer Engineering. Though I’m very interested in cloud, infrastructure, and automation, my current ambition is to refine my software development skills. My favorite language to code in right now is Go, and I tend to favor backend development in general.
I’ve presented at a number of conferences, meetups, and user groups in my career and enjoy sharing whatever knowledge I can.
I’ve had the opportunity to work with all of these technologies in some capacity throughout my career and I would love to work with them more.
I have a passion for decentralized social media and chat services, and I enjoy spending my time setting up servers that participate in larger decentralized networks. I currently run a Diaspora server as well as a Matrix server.
