I'm an open source technologist living in San Francisco, most recently the Head of Open Source at Open Raven.

The heart of my professional work has been open source software, community, and developer ecosystems.

Prior to joining the startup world, I led open source programs at Apple, focused on machine learning and cloud infrastructure. I've also worked for Twitter and Mozilla in open source developer relations roles, and received a masters degree from the UC Berkeley School for Information.

I've helped release and grow numerous open source projects including FoundationDB, Apache Mesos, and Apache Aurora.

Today I'm looking to give back to the open source community where I can. If I can be of help, shoot me an email.
