A history of professional, educational, and personal interests


I am a polyglot developer with considerable experience in Ruby and Rails and cloud infrastructure. I excel at being a force multiplier, mentoring developers, and writing clear and useful documentation for other engineers. I am passionate about giving my teams the tools they need to develop and deliver software by creating powerful and simple development and deployment environments.
