I am a principal software engineer at Fastly, where I work on our TLS infrastructure. I enjoy the challenges of its massive scale on a globally distributed system.
Before that, I worked at Scout Exchange managing DevOps and ETL, at litl as software team lead for backend software, at ITA Software on operations infrastructure and tools, and at Ximian and Novell on Linux desktop and software management systems.
I have contributed to many open source projects over the years. Much of my more recent work can be found on my GitHub page. Earlier I worked on large open source projects like GNOME, Mono, and D-Bus.
I live in Columbus, OH with my wife and kids.
I love curling and am a member of the Columbus Curling Club. I’m also an avid hockey fan who pledges allegience to the Boston Bruins and Columbus Blue Jackets.
