I’m a software engineer at Heroku and a member of the Department of Data. Prior to Heroku, I worked on streaming data processing systems where I built event processing engines, data ingestion pipelines, and pub sub services. I have additional experience in fields such as ad tech, messaging, and marketing automation derived from past startups. My current work involves delivering and maintaining Apache Kafka as a service.

I currently maintain backoff, gomkafka, and alpaca.

I have a masters in computer science with concentration in network security.
