Storage, Cloud, and Data Protection Engineer
I work at Pure Storage where I'm the Principal Technology Strategist for North America West. Prior to that my career focused mostly on data storage and protection technologies. I first moved to Seattle to work for Microsoft where most of my time was spent managing very large SAN systems. This led to a career as a Systems Engineer for both startup and enterprise size storage vendors.
In addition to IT architecture, I enjoy a variety of geeky hobbies including tabletop gaming, ham radio, and fermenting all sorts of things from beer to kimchi.
I also volunteer with PTA where I currently support Legislative Advocacy efforts for the Shoreline School District.
