I’ve been working as a software engineer on various large scale software systems since 2009. I love working with diverse and interesting groups of people. I value solving complex problems simply. I believe strongly in the “engineering” of software engineering: good design processes, good transition and contingency planning, cost estimates in line with business goals.

I current work at Grafana, where we make an incredibly-widely used, open source data visualization and monitoring tool, as well as some of the world’s most capable observability databases. Grafana is hiring like crazy.
