"Fixing the things in ways you don't notice."

About me

I've spent the last 10 years learning about building scalable infrastructure for the web and finally get to apply that experience towards making the world a better place.

My work

As a member of the operations team at Wikimedia, some of my time is spent on maintenance and fixing production problems, but the majority of my work is rebuilding components of our infrastructure with the goal of making them more fault tolerant and stable.
