About Me

Data Engineer with a strong experience managing complex production operations, with expertise in distributed systems and databases.

I like to solve complex problems around delivering real time infrastructure in perpetual growth, and maintains some of the core pieces of large-scale production architecture serving 200B+ events daily.

Some of the technologies I work with include Kafka, Aerospike, Redis, Memcache, and I like to program in Python, Ruby and Go.
