I currently work for Microsoft in Seattle, on improving storage performance for the Azure cloud.
I graduated from Brown University with a B.S. in Computer Science in 2013.

I love computer systems! I have experience working on distributed systems, multithreaded native code optimization, storage drivers, RDMA networking, kernel programming and computer graphics.

I also love to learn and teach! I do a 1½ hour technical overview presentation on Azure Storage a few times a year for new developers, and I was also a teaching assistant for 6 classes over 5 semesters during my undergrad.

Work Experience
Software Engineering for Microsoft, 2013-Present

Principal Software Engineer on Azure Storage Performance, 2017-Present

Software Engineer II on Windows Deployment, 2013-2017


Teaching Assistant for Brown University Computer Science, 2010-2013
Side Projects Technology Experience

Most recently: C/C++, Windows Drivers, RDMA

These are my bread and butter in my current job role, so they're all still top of mind.

In the past: OpenGL, Qt, Python, Java, Linux shells, C#, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, SQL

I have used these for nontrivial projects, but it's been long enough I may be rusty.

Also dabbled with: Rust, Go, Ruby

I've played around with these in my free time, but haven't had the opportunity to build something notable.


I have a B.S. in Computer Science from Brown University, for which I took the following courses:
