Software Engineer @ Buckeye Interactive


I enjoy helping small businesses and startups gain a competitive edge through software engineering. Building high quality systems in an efficient manner is a must for these companies. By combining open source technologies and sound engineering practices I am able to do this effectively. I am always looking to learn new technologies and master new skills.

I spent the summer interning on the Scuba Infrastructure Team. Scuba is a distributed, in-memory stats store used by engineers and data scientists at Facebook.
