About me

I am a Senior Developer living in Sydney, Australia that primarily focuses on backend web development at scale, but has a wide breadth of knowledge from Networking, Cloud Infrastructure to Frontend Javascript and back to Low-level Linux internals.

Throughout the years, I have gained expert knowledge on running and maintaining production infrastructure in the cloud, at scale.

Some of the technologies I have expert knowledge of:

  • Amazon Web Services
  • Terraform
  • Puppet
  • Elasticsearch
  • RabbitMQ
  • Redis
  • MySQL
  • Varnish
  • Fastly
  • Akamai
  • RPC Frameworks (GRPC / Apache Thrift)
  • Logstash
  • React
  • Consul
  • Python
  • Go
  • PHP
  • The list goes on.

I try to take a pragmatic approach to development. Not everything has to be perfect, sometimes knowing how perfect something needs to be is the key to success. Business value is crucial and balancing short term and long term value is a skill that not many possess.
