I'm a Senior Software Engineer building web services and high-performing teams at scale.
I love coffee. I carefully prepare every detail of my coffee ritual to have the perfect cup every morning, and I build platforms and teams that are the best of the best in that same way.
Software is rapidly transforming every industry, building robust software and having the right team are essential for staying competitive and thriving.
Experimentation, observability, and serverless architectures are my approach's foundation to distributed systems, but the people is what truly make a difference. I don't settle for anything less than excellence, and I make sure my team feels comfortable running experiments and improving every day so we can get there.
