We're building medical devices for folks with spinal cord injuries. In order to create these devices in a safe and reliable manner, we need to increase our iteration speed and volume of production. Software, Infrastructure, and Distributed Systems skills are highly relevant to help us build developer productivity, internal compute platforms, observability, and data storage. There are a ton of exciting challenges, please reach out if you'd like to learn more!


I was a software engineer on the Operations Team at Slack, then a Senior Staff Site Reliability Engineer. I partnered closely with the Core Infrastructure and Enterprise orgs to help Slack scale for our largest, and most security conscious customers.

Previous Experience

Previously, I was the Mesos/Aurora SRE Tech Lead at Twitter, and an Internal Technology Resident at Google. I received a Computer Science BS in May 2010 from Chapman University in Orange, California.

Check out some of the talks I've given over the years!
