I work at Facebook as a Production Engineer which is a hybrid role between a Software Engineer and an SRE and I work on the Linux Kernel. I have 10 years of experience building software solutions for a variety of companies in just as many languages. I value true deep learning as opposed to just strict memorization to get the job done. By truly learning a topic you can then build and iterate using it to author amazing things.

I've worked in Storage, AI/ML, Kernel and Kernel Tooling and service deployment on a global scale. I have professional experience with many of the modern leading containerization and virtualization technologies such as Kubernetes, OpenStack and VMWare as well as extensive experience developing for Linux as a platform.
