I’ve worked on a few different teams and projects (the majority in Go) at DigitalOcean.
On the delivery team, I worked on DOCC, an abstraction layer on top of kubernetes. I especially focused on integrating metrics and monitoring with DOCC as well as jobs. You can learn more about DOCC and metrics in this talk.
As a member of the observability team, I worked on a new iteration of our datacenter-wide monitoring system, known as Pandora.
I joined the network services team at the beginning of this year and have delved into a new world of software defined networking in the cloud. I first worked on configuring observability primitives (logging, tracing, and metrics) crucial for the testing and release of the VPC (Virtual Private Cloud) product. I’m currently working on an internal DHCP server implementation.
In 2016, I was a member of the Tow-Kight Entrepreneurial Journalism Fellowship. I worked on and presented Fibbit, a veterinary search and health tool for pets, with pricing information for various vaccines, exams, and procedures. I pitched Fibbit at the conclusion of the fellowship. The Fibbit prototype was a simple Node.js application leveraging mapbox.js.
From 2015 to 2016, I worked on Perooz, a journalism tool consisting of a website and an annotation tool for news websites. My cofounder and I pitched at various events and to several accelerators but ultimately elected to stop working on the project and release it. The various repos can be found here and here. I even wrote a postmortem of sorts on it.
I started taking photos with a used Sony A5100 mirrorless a year ago and finally decided to share some photos here. Just a few snapshots:
