Who am I?

I am a security operations engineer based out of San Francisco focusing on AWS, Docker, and Kubernetes security. Originally from Seattle, WA where my work bounced between web developer and freelance sound designer/audio engineer.

Having a background in web development allows me to develop easy-to-use and accessible Security tooling for the teams I work in. Building tools that transform frustrating tasks into enjoyable ones is something I never get tired of.

Whether that takes the form of an HTTP microservice, secret scanning utility, or an incident response dashboard, I always keep the user experience in mind.
