I am a programmer and writer.
Professionally, I work for Dell EMC as a Senior Principal Software Engineer within Isilon. Previously, I worked at Storybird, Canonical, The Washington Post, and a few other media companies. I'm into scale and performance, distributed systems, and great engineering practices.
Prior to my technical career, I worked as an English teacher and travelled the US as a professional musician. I still help out with my local high school's marching band as a drumline instructor, which allows me to continue my love for teaching and music. I also still play music whenever and wherever I can.
I write regularly here on my personal site. I'm also always working on a novel. Eventually, I'll feature some of that writing here.
I also vlog occasionally.
