I am a Software Engineer, building tools to make on-call life a little better, at LightStep. Concurrently, I'm working on a Master's degree in Computer Science from Georgia Tech (OMSCS). Previously, I studied Computer Science at Virginia Tech. I am a recent arrival to the San Francisco Bay Area, having previously lived in the suburbs of Washington D.C. Other previous employers include: Rally Health, Opower, Qualcomm, IBM. My interests are in software performance, reliability and observability and I am always looking to get better at building scalable, reliable and maintainable software that just works™.
