Where I've Been
I graduated in 2014 from Western Washington University. During and since then I've worked on a range of projects and technologies from test automation, internal vm deployment tools, customer facing android apps, all the way to kernel development. My most recent work has been in developing test tools in Python and corresponding kernel components in C for a fork of the FreeBSD operating system.
What I'm DoingRecently I've written test automation suites and kernel test hooks that cover the back-end communication, resource locking, and failover components of our highly-available distributed filesystem. In my free cycles I've also been working to improve the tools I and other engineers use to deploy VM clusters that build and test the software we're developing. I'm also a huge fan of supporting open source software and have just released my first Python package, PyGoogleSMS, on PyPI.
What I Want To Be Doing
I want to build and improve things. I love to design, create, and iterate. I'd be happiest in a place where I can design and build back-end products or tools that have a positive influence on the engineering process. I firmly believe in using the best tool for the job. My current fascination is with Python and Flask but I can pick up new languages and frameworks quickly. I'm super interested in microservice architectures at the moment especially because of their inherent distributed nature and the possibilities for continuous deployment.
