I’ve been a developer for 22+ years, working the majority of that time in Java. With experience in a diverse spectrum of problem domains, including blood transfusion, enterprise SAN/network management and payment systems. I’ve had a lot of opportunities to learn from my mistakes.
I’ve been very fortunate to be able to work in Scala for the last 3 years or so, in the service of Comcast, where I have been for about 6 years. I’m currently a developer on Comcast’s cloud scaling tool, Gumby, where I’m on a great team, writing interesting software while we do our best to be as “DevOps” as possible. I am based in California, and work out of the Comcast Silicon Valley office.
