I started my career day trading equities in New York. During this time I taught myself how to automate my trading strategies and develop new algorithmic trading systems. This is when I discovered the joy in software engineering and re-ignited my childhood passion for computer science.
I then transitioned to a software engineering role at a cryptocurrency start-up where I oversaw all data ingestion and our real-time data products. While here I also earned a Master’s of Computer Science from Georgia Tech.
I then worked for Zapier as a Sr. Data Engineer on their Core Data Engineering team. Now I work as a Sr. Data Engineer at Datadog on their Internal Analytics team. I spend my spare time working on various side projects and learning new things.
