I'm a seasoned consultant, architect and principal engineer with over 15 years of experience. By day, I thrive in helping organizations to be more productive and deliver high value innovative solutions that empower people to unlock the full potential of cloud technology. By night, I'm on a mission to develop free and accessible software for culture, and education. Beyond my professional journey, I find joy in being a dedicated dad and an avid world traveler.
