Software engineer and maintainer of the open source project Shipwright.
Software engineer and maintainer of the open source project Shipwright. Currently at Red Hat, enhancing developer experience on the OpenShift Container Platform.
I started my career as a software engineer and technology consultant, specializing in analytic applications. I helped my clients design and implement high-quality technology products that improve operational awareness and system efficiency. I worked with business and IT stakeholders to construct a thorough understanding of operational processes, identify strategic technology goals, design innovative data-driven solutions, and manage these projects to completion. My engagements included rigorous requirements analysis, consensus-driven problem-solving, and the application of software engineering best practices, all of which helped create successful and transformative products.
I then dabbled in the startup universe at Findyr, conducting crowdsourced market research and data collection all over the world.
Today I lead a team of phenomenally talented engineers at Red Hat that improves the experience of developers who use Kubernetes to deploy their applications. In that spirit I am also one of the maintainers of Shipwright, an open source framework for building container images on Kubernetes.
