I'm a Software Engineer at Segment working on infrastructure services. Before that, I worked on Protocols and Typewriter.

Before Segment, I was a Venture Partner at Contrary Capital, where I ran the University of Maryland community. I also bootstrapped the branding and engineering teams at Contrary.

I was also a Kleiner Perkins Engineering Fellow on the infrastructure team at Nextdoor. Before that, I was a SWE intern at Google on App Engine Search.

I founded and taught CMSC389L, Practical Cloud Computing with AWS, during the Fall 2017 and Spring 2018 semesters at UMD.

I also pursued a Master's degree in Computer Science at UMD where I focused on security and distributed systems.
