I'm a software architect/developer with deep experience building and scaling high-traffic web sites. I'm currently an engineer in the Search Infrastructure team @ LinkedIn. Before joining search, I spent some time in LinkedIn's Analytics Platform team building self-service Hadoop-based analytics. Prior to joining LinkedIn, I held technical and leadership positions at Netflix, Etsy, eBay, and Siebel Systems.
Outside of work, I help venture-backed startups with issues such as managing for growth - scaling people, traffic, and data.
I speak at a few conferences every year -- for a smaller set of conferences, I help pick topics and speakers.
