🐝 work 🥑

I’ve been developing software professionally since 2015, after going back to school to take online computer science classes. Since then I’ve been lucky to work in a range of domains and with lots of wonderful people. Check out my resume.

Currently I work as a Developer Advocate at Honeycomb↗️. My job involves spreading the word about observability, helping people get the most out of Honeycomb, and sharing valuable user feedback with our product team. I also work on the Honeycomb blog↗️ and o11ycast↗️!
