About

Hello 👋
I am a Senior Software Engineer with over 9 years of experience. Over the years, I've seamlessly transitioned between individual contributor and managerial roles, cultivating a rich skill set and an adept understanding of the engineering landscape. Having played a pivotal role in projects that achieved successful scaling, I bring a profound understanding of when to re-architect, rewrite, refactor, or optimize systems.
In addition to backend engineering, I have a solid foundation in Unix fundamentals and proficiency in AWS Cloud. This diverse skill set allows me to approach challenges with a holistic perspective, ensuring robust and efficient solutions.
