Here I am!

Hello! I’m currently a Software Engineer at Datadog. I recently completed my undergraduate degree in Computer Engineering at the University of Waterloo. I’ve previously completed internships at Flipp (formerly known as Wishabi), Datadog, Disqus, Busbud, and 500px.

I’m interested in using distributed systems to solve problems in software systems related to scalability, maintainability, and performance. My previous internships have focused on designing and building scalable server-side software systems, as well as managing monitoring, configuration management, and deployment & automation for these systems.

In the past, along with my development and operations responsibilities, I’ve also had experience managing projects, designing product, providing customer support, consulting clients, and training junior team members.

I also love to write! Several of my technical writings have been published on The New Stack and the Datadog blog.

Outside of work, I’m passionate about open source software. Lately I’ve been dabbling into 2D and 3D game development. I also enjoy music, and love to play guitar.
