As a Senior Cloud Architect, my responsibilities were two-fold: to lead the technical delivery of new Azure Landing Zones and to mentor and level-up junior engineers largely through pairing.

Contino, Technical Principal
Dallas, TX (and other locations)

Contino was acquired by Cognizant Technology Solutions in October 2019.

At Contino, I focused on building high-performance, cross-functional teams to help large enterprises get to production more quickly and providing high-quality technical solutions to tough problems. Key elements of my approach were strategic and tactical advisory to senior engineering leadership, providing engineers with technical leadership through mentorship, pairing, and coaching, and showing the “art of the possible” through demos, example applications, and technical workshops. Additionally, I provided thought leadership in infrastructure automation, modern software development practices, DevOps, and SRE through blog posts, articles, talks, and workshops.

ThoughtWorks, Senior Infrastructure Consultant
